Penny Black #67 is 'lace and pearls', followed sketch from Sketch Satruday #69, Polka Doodle #18 is 'DIY Flowers', just happens that Funky Fairy challenge 35 is 'Oodles of Doodles' and Simon Says Stamp challenge is 'Stitching:real or faux'!
So the papers are from Funky Fairy downloads 'Aqualicious Delight' stamped image with Momento Tuxedo Black ink pad, PB 'hugs' clear sheet, w/coloured with my Koi's, balloon 3D'd, sentiment from American Crafts clear stamps, lace and pearls from stash, made my own flowers by cutting out circles and taking out small snippets and either curling inwards or outwards. Doodling on hand cut scallopped oval, faux stitching on the edges but seems like the stitch has runaway a little bit and become a tacking stitch for temporary dressmaking that is! I had to do quick recovery work on this one, as a stripe on the backing paper had a faulty ink line running in it and instead of throwing the whole piece away, i cut out another strip from extra sheet and pasted it on top and now you can't see it only if you look close enough, they're the two yellow lines, or maybe i shouldn't have said? Finished off the flowers with a touch of Glamour Dust.

Just to add quickly after a long post that Lorraine from Simon Says Stamp challenge would be ever so happy if you'd join in with their weekly challenge as they're trying to reach 200 entries, well with over 600 followers it can't be that difficult can it? Hope to see you there, bye for now.
