My first Sarah Kay Challenge

I have never previously taken part in a Sarah Kay challenge as I don't own any of the stamps (yet!) but I was recently gifted a few by my friend Cathy, so I thought I'd have a go this week, and would use the outcome as my Docrafts image swap wallet for Vonnie.
Sarah Kay Challenge #11 is a trio of papers, which I have to say is right up my street as I have developed a serious obsession for multiple co-ordinating papers on cards recently LOL!

I used: base mottled green cardstock from the Papermill shop; 3 papers by K&Co; flowers by Prima; pearl brads and small gemstone flowers (which are actually blue in daylight!) by Papermania; seintiment by ge studio; ribbon from my stash. The inside of the wallet is decorated with the same flowery stripe paper as is used immediately behind the image on the card front. I also had a go at faux stitiching as one of the papers already had some as part of the design.


  1. Gorgeous Paulkine. I love the colours and papers.

  5. I love this Pauline, those papers are stunning. I'm a bit thick today, not really sure what you mean on my blog, are you asking what I use to colour with? I used Prismacolours.

  6. Great card i love it. You asked on cupcake about the clock. looks like lauren has moved it down the sidebar a bit but at the moment it's between 'sponsor us' and 'fill out our questionaire'. lauren livs in Adelaide australia
