So Distressful with the SCSC and a Sad Farewell!!!!

Good morning to you all in the land of blog

Today sees the last challenge at the 

with the boss lady Wendy choosing the theme of


we have no sponsor this week and there will be no spotlight chosen card.

It has been a pleasure working with the ladies of the Secret Crafter Team and after such a long time, almost two years designing for them, the owners have decided to call it a day.

So here is what I created for your final inspiration piece, but don't forget to hop on over to the main challenge blog to check out the other fabulous creations and hope you will hop over and say your farewell's.

I of course will still be here and hope you will still hop by:)
I made an 8 x 8 inch card for a lady who is leaving my team. Rather apt for this challenge I think, although it was not planned that way.

The base layer and contrast is a deep chocolate brown.  The papers the unmistakeable and just gorgeous GCD Studio's Paris Nights, the shaping is from Go Kreate dies.  The sentiment is surrounded by gorgeous butterflies from "Wedding Butterflies" stamp set by Wild Rose Studio. I have distressed all the edges and added stickles to some, added a ribbon tied in a bow some pearls and air brushed the Wild Orchid Crafts roses with E74 copics before adding some more stickles.

Here is  a close up of the sentiment

If you want to see more of the Wild Rose Studio collection or be inspired by others hop and see us on

I would like to say hello to my new followers, and thank all my wonderful followers and visitors for their lovely inspiring comments, which allow me to hop over and visit you in return.

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges

Hi Kate
Oh WOW, this card tickled my taste buds. As soon as I saw it I was thinking chocolate and caramel which I have been deprived for ages, so it is very interesting that something like a picture can trigger the need for having some chocolate. Anyway I LOVE the card. It is really rich in colours. Love the focal point, it has got a beautiful shape to it and the rest of the elements you used are gorgeous too!

What a sad day for both reasons......such a long time being associated with SCSC and to see a member of your team leaving. You've managed to come up with a stunning card with such an apt sentiment.
