Wendy from the secret crafter and Virginia from instylestamps has donated things towards the candy. I have shopped myself at the secret crafter and it's a shop I recommend. I bought all the newest promarkers from her at the best price I could find and the shipping was resonable too.

Every rose has its thorn...

This week's challenge over at the Simon says stamp challenge blog is absolutely brilliant! The challenge is to make a card with a song of your choice in mind. I chose: every rose has its thorns by Poison. I had just seen a documentary about the band on MTV and this beautiful ballad got stuck in my head. As soon as I saw the challenge and started singing the song I thought of this image - Love is gone from sweetpea stamps. It's very goth and rock'n'roll.

I started by choosing matching papers. I had a small rosey panel that I matched with a stripey one ffrom BG. I then coloured my image with coordinating promarkers. I wanted the circular part of the sketch to look like a rose so I cut out circles in different shades and sizes. Then I assembled them so they would look like a rose. To accentuate the detail I added a small piece of leaf-ribbon. It was white, but I coloured it with my promarkers to match. The final touch was some glitter and pearls in the corners.

I also had a bunch of other challenges in mind when making this card. "Music" was the theme at promarker challenge and pile it on also had "a little bit of country, a little bit of rock'n'roll".

I used a sketch from sketch and stash challenge and "pearls" that was the theme over at basic grey. The thing I used from BG is the stripey paper at the bottom. I don't remember what the line is called, but I know it's Basic Grey.

And finally, this month's theme at stamp and create is: "flowers".
