antique at WOW powders

Hello lovelies - how are you today? We are all good - we had a fabulous day at Buttermere in the Lake District yesterday. Here's some piccies:


This was on the outward leg of the walk - very high spirits!



time for lunch!



A rest before the final furlong! Did you ever see anybody else walk in a dress like this! She's very individual! Lol!

It was such a fabulous day - a really easy 4 and 1/2 miles and not a single moan! Brilliant - well done girls!

Today I have my entry to this months challenge over at WOW powders - the theme is antique - this one had me stumped for a while but then I decided to go with this design:


I started by stamping the background using a fabulous stamp from Penny Black. I stamped in versamark onto kraft card then added platinum wow powders and heat set. Next I stamped the image from Crafty Individuals.


I stamped using sepia archival. Next I added the words stamped in sepia archival - these are by dylusions. Then I added the bow from That craft place and the trinket from Crafty Individuals.


I love this ribbon - its so beautiful - they do it in a range of colours too!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Wow embossing powderswowembossingpowder: Antique
sweet stampinsweetstampinchallengeblog: Sparkle and shine
Crafty Catzcraftycatzweeklychallenge: Embossing
Rhedd and Rosiesrheddandrosies: No flowers.

Have a great Tuesday - I'm taking my girls to my mums  and going off to the gym. I think a swim is the order of the day today!

Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you again soon!

Big Hugs
