Brush Flower Card.

I seem to be using green and brown shades a lot lately, here's a card I've made for the latest Annabelle's Bling Sketch Challenge over at Annabelle Stamps Blog. For once, I've even finished my card early! If you'd like to enter this challenge you have until Friday June 18th, and there's also a prize up for grabs!

For my background piece I've used a technique from the latest Technique Junkie Newsletter called 'Glimmer Marbling'. I've stamped directly onto my background piece, all the stamps are by Penny Black, then layered the pieces onto black cardstock. I've added a strip of green grosgrain ribbon underneath and a row of Kaiser black rhinestones at the bottom of the card. The cardstock is from Pedigree Paper - if you happen to live in Melbourne, Pedigree Paper has a factory outlet shop that you can visit, just click on the link for the address.

On a personal note, my new chemotherapy regime seems to be much better for me. I have an infusion that lasts for around 45mins.......much better than the 4 hours for the previous regime, and it's so far so good with the new chemo tablets. I'm certainly not as tired and I've not had any nausea either......fingers crossed it stays that way!

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you are all having a lovely day!
