Long Time, No Challenge

Well, it's absolutely ages since I've had a go at a CPS template but yesterday while I was pushing paper and embellishments around my craft table looking for inspiration I suddenly remembered the templates that they come up with each week and headed straight over to their blog.

Here's this weeks template:
You'll notice that I've turned the template round sideways to do my card because it suited the imaged that I eventually decided to use.

This is what I came up with:

The first thing I did was to cover a DL card with Dusky Pink patterned paper from the English Paper Company. I then stamped the three images of the lady using one of the stamps from Tanda's Retro Women Set 2. Each one has been stamped in a different shade of Color Box, Fluid Chalk may have noticed that I use these a lot, well that's because I love the softness of the image that they produce. The colours are really fabby too!
Each of the images was matted onto Brown card and had the ribbon and brad added before being mounted onto the prepared card base. I then added the stamped greeting, which has also been matted onto Brown card.
I hope you like my effort.
Thanks for looking.
