Blended Bloom!

Hi Everyone!

Well last night I had an amazing evening of marathon crafting with a very special lady - we crafted till 3:00am!  Don't you just love it?!?!  We did, however, miss our 3rd partner in crime...  But, we focussed quite a bit on the new items from the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.  I will have a few cards to share with you over the next few days.  :)

First off, last night I had my first chance to play with the brand new Stampin' Up! Blendabilities markers and can I just say, I am in LOVE!!!  These markers are alcohol based and are amazing for colouring!  I will definitely need more practice but I really feel that these will become a staple in my craft room - they will be on my next order for sure!

As always, I decided to play along with a few challenges - they always give me so much inspiration.

First, there was a great sketch over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and I thought it was a fantastic opportunity to use the new Blended Bloom stamp.

I decided to pair the sketch with the color challenge over at Pals Paper Arts:


Here is my card:
