And my next Favourite!!

So while we are talking about Favourite New Stamp Sets, this is my second favourite - I totally love this set, AND it has reminded me why I love to do watercolouring (because it really makes me feel totally artistic!!)  This new stamp set is Best Thoughts.

JAI #271

and this week TGIF are challenging us to use our new Favourites, so my project fits perfectly!! And to make the creation so much easier, I've used the sketch challenge from JAI for my layout.  If you would love to see some more AMAZING projects from both of these great challenge blogs, simply click on each of the graphics to go there and check it all out!!

I've also used some other favourites on my card too - the lovely wooden Expressions Natural Elements, and the Tip Top Taupe ribbon is hiding behind the yummy gold glimmer paper too.

I've added some dazzling details to my stamens of the flower to give the card even MORE bling!!

It's so lovely to combine the bling and the vintage of sponging and burlap!!  I hope you like it too!!


  1. Well, you've had a lot of fun with gorgeous new goodies on this card, Julia! It's beautiful; so pretty and vintagey. Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink this week!

  2. What a beautiful take on this weeks sketch Julia! I love the soft vintage style and the addition of dazzling details adds so much. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

  3. I really like the use of the Glitter paper and wooden sentiment. I think they add great texture to your card. Chantell JAI

  4. This is gorgeous Julia! Love the bit of sparkle and that sentiment. I love that new stamp too, it's so pretty and versatile. Thanks for playing along at Just Add Ink :)
