Petals and Pearls at Crafts and Me

Morning Peeps,

Wow doesn't time fly.  It's another fortnight gone and another challenge at Crafts and Me.  This fortnights challenge has been chosen by none other than myself, and do I have a challenge for you....."Petals and Pearls".  So get out all your girly stamps and add all those luscious petals and pearls.  Can't wait to see what you come up with.  We are being sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps who are offering 7 Digi's of the Winner's choice so we do hope you'll join in the fun.

Now, those of you who know me will be thinking, like I was, ideal opportunity for pink, lilac, girly stash, loads of blooms and pearls.  Well, much to my own surprise I have done something quite different.  You all know how much I hate monochromatic but for seem reason I wanted to try sepia so this is what I have come up with....

Well, what do ya think?

It's not without stickles, although gold this time, lol.
