SFTW - challenge #5 Double or Nothing....

Gosh these Friday's sure are coming around quickly aren't they. Can you believe that we are already on week 5 of our challenges over at Stampin for the Weekend.

This week we have two wonderful prizes up for grabs, the first is from Daisy May Designs and the lucky winner will have the choice of 5 digital sheets, which has been so kindly donated by Linnie.

The second prize has again been kindly donated by Janet over at Pink Gem Designs. The lucky winner will receive this cute Fairy stamp.

The very lovely Nancy is our Guest Designer again this week. She has done such a fantastic job these last two weeks, not only has she created such wonderful cards but she has also visited everyone's blogs who entered last week and left such lovely comments. Thank you very much Nancy for being part of our team for these two weeks, it has been a pleasure to have you as a GDT member, I hope you have enjoyed yourself.

And now to this weeks challenge which is entitled "Double or Nothing". Kimmi & Donna have come up with two fantastic sketches for you to make your cards with. We shall leave the decision up to you as to which one or both you decide to go with.

Donna's sketch

Kimmi's sketch
For this weeks challenge I have used Kimmi's sketch. And as you can see, just a lil bit of distressing has gone!!! I've coloured the WOJ Melinda image with distress inks, used glamour dust for her wings. The papers are K & Co, I've used my SU distressing tool around the edges, then applied some chalk ink. The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts, lace, string of pearls and charm from my stash, the sentiment is Stampin Up.

Don't forget to pop by and check out my lovely fellow DT members creations, they have come up with some beauties again this week. I hope you'll be able to join us for this weeks challenge over at SFTW, I shall look forward to seeing what you create using the above sketches and you never know it could be you who'll win those lovely prizes. Hope you all have a lovely weekend, luv 'n' hugs xx vicki xx

Beautiful card Vicki, you've done a marvelous job coloring her too with the distress inks. Your flower arrangements are amazing and I love all the distressing and inking you've done on the edges of the papers, another vintage look to it all.

This is just so beautiful Vicki. I love the soft colours and torn edges, it's so shabby chic and feminine. All the embellishments finish the card to perfection.
Have a wonderful weekend.
