Challenge #5 Double or Nothing

Wow we had some wonderful and beautiful creative pocket/wallet cards to look at last week, and now it's Week 5 already at Stampin´for the Weekend and this week both Kim and Donna have come up with two inspirational sketches for you, and it's your choice which you wish to follow. We've got two wonderful prizes donated by two sponsors, so we'll have two winners for this challenge, one for each sketch. For sketch ONE done by Kimmi, we have
Pink Gem Designs
as our sponsor. Janet is offering up this wonderful Flower Fairy stamp.


And now for the second sketch by Donna we have cute Cute Daisy May Designs
as our sponsor and Lyn is offering the lucky winner of this sketch their choice of 5 of her digi sheets.


Today we say goodbye to the lovely Nancy who has been our Guest Designer this past fortnight and it has been our pleasure to work with this very talented lady so please pop by her fab blog and leave her some love.

For my card I have coloured my gorjuss girl with prisma coloured pencils blending with sansodor. My papers are all SU and I have used my MSDL to give a nice scalloped border and my retro to back the roses from my stash. Corner is a die cut from Avec and buttons are ribbons are also from my stash whilst sentiment is from See D Celebrations.
I do hope you will play along with "Double or Nothing" this week and also ckeck out my DT buddies blogs for inspiration here Donna, Kimmi, Amy, Claire, Ida, Jen, Poppet, Vicki and Vanja
