Couples for St Lukes

Our challenge over at St Luke's this month is all about couples - not necessarily romantic ones - if you check out the challenge you can see the variety of inspiration from the DT with feathers, fur and scales.....

I didn't go down the romantic route either - I went for a couple of great friends with one of my favourite stamps from the Uptown Girls range by Stampin Bella.

I simply stamped the image onto colouring card, coloured with copics and pencils and stamped the matching sentiment underneath.    Simply decorated with some DP matting and layering, a little ribbon and some off cuts from a PTI border die which make an interesting faux photo fixer.  I added a gem to enhance the deco feel of the die cut shape.

We have a couple of super cute stamps form Lili of the Valley as prizes this month so I do hope you'll join in on the challenge  -  our numbers have dropped a little and even if you don't want to donate your card to the charity element of the challenge, the more players we get online the more the word gets out to new players so you're still doing your bit to help the charity along.

Thanks for stopping by.
