Love-ly card and blogcandy!

I have finally been able to play a little with my new stash. For this card I used a Sarah Kay stamp (I just knew it had to be my first SK the second I saw it), some new papers and my new red distress pad to make the swirls and tattered rose on the edges of the image. Oh, and I used my crackeling medium on the "adore" letters.

I made this card using a sketch from sketchsaturday DT call sketch. The time has run out an I will apply with this card for the spot. I hope they think it's innovative enough.

I'm also linking it up on the Charisma card challenge blog. This week's theme is SWIRLS, CURLS (with the added extra hearts) Doesn't this card just fit the criteria perfectly? I love my little swirly heart dies. I couldn't decide on which size to take so I bought them both thinking I would use them in this exact way. They are actually two seperate hearts, I just cut the small one open and attached it to the bigger one. Aren't I the smartest cookie ever, lol?

I used my promarkers as usual. I love the way the colours match the papers. I'm quite happy with how the scalloped border turned out. I used my scalloped scissors and then punched holes to make the decorative edge. My fiskar's border punches have given up so I need to be creative. I wonder if I can write to fiskars and get the borderpunches exchanged or something. Does anyone know?

Now on to the candy: the sweet pea blog are having a wonderful Christmas candy. You can win the new set of stamps and a whole sheet of sentiments. They are so new that not even the DT have layed their inky paws on them :)
The sooner you link up the blog the more entries you get, so spread the word and keep your fingers crossed. Ends 7:th.

Love your card Katarina. The colours do match the papers perfectly :)
And I should know how fantastic you are at colouring in images, as I just received your beautiful card and blog candy today!!!
I was so excited to see an envelope from Sweden in my letterbox.
Thank you so much for my lovely new stash, the papers are gorgeous and the little flowers and brads are perfect too!!
Take care,
