2 Challenges in one

I'm loving all the challenge blogs I'm finding, finally gives me a reason other than occasions to get out my stash and make something. This time I'm doing the Colour Create Challenge which is Challenge 27 - Neon and black and Cupcake Craft Challenge 57 Pearls and swirls
I just love these gorjuss girls stamps, I coloured it with coloured pencils and sansodor, and used the same technique on the green backing to create a blended frame, I then embossed some green card using the script embossing folder and cuttlebug, and inked over with black ink. The greeting, swirls and leaves are stamped and its been embellished with prima hydrangeas (one of which I coloured black with a promarker as I had no black ones) that is attached with a green pearl brad. :o)
Hope you like it I had lots of fun making it, thanks for popping by and looking.
