Milly with Flowers

Welcome to another wet weekend with flood warnings forecast all over the UK!  How much longer can this rain go on for?  I hope everyone is safe and has managed to avoid the worst of the weather.

I hope you're not one of the 20,000 ticket holders that have been told not to turn up at Silverstone today for the British Grand Prix practise sessions.  Apparently the roads were grid locked yesterday because of flooded car parks so they've shut them today in preparation for tomorrows race and told people to stay away.  I would be so disappointed if I were one of them, wouldn't you?

This week at A Gem of a Challenge, it's Jenny's turn to host the challenge and she's given us a fab sketch to work with:

It didn't take me long to choose my image from the great choice at Pink Gem Designs, but I did flip the sketch - again!!!!!!  Here's my card, but please pop over to the challenge blog for loads more inspiration from the Pink Gem girlies too.

Materials used:
Coloured with promarkers
Distress ink - spun sugar
Faux stitching - Marvy lePlume pen - cherry & peacock green
Doily and glitter from my stash
Label - heavenly tags
Sentiment - Janes Script
Adirondack ink - juniper
Backing paper - First Edition - Isabelle

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Wild Orchid - punch it out
Papertake Weekly - anything goes
Outlawz - anything goes

xx Happy crafting and glittery hugs xx
