My special news

Afternoon Everyone
I hope that you are all having a wonderful day.
It has been very mild in my neck of the woods with even a hint of sunshine - perhaps I ought not to say that too loud or it will go away lol.
It has definitely felt like Spring and with that in mind I will share my fabulous news.
I have been asked to join The Stamp Man design team where their challenge this time is The Colours of Spring / Easter.
I didn't have to think for very long before I gave Jill my answer, I feel honoured to have been asked to join such a fabulous team.
This is the card that I have made for the challenge using my favourite Artemio clear stamp set 10001147 Hedgerow Plants.
I made a piece of background paper using the Faux Mother of Pearl technique that I so love. This was made using Adirondack Metallic Pearl Acrylic Paint Dabber and Distress inks - Antique Linen, and Spun Sugar.
Once I had made the piece of background I stamped over it using one of the images from the Hedgerow Plants stamp set and the distress ink pads.
I sponged ink around the edges of the panel using a blending tool and then embossed it with clear embossing powder.
The circular panel has been cut out using a nestie and then dry embossed with a large ball tool before adding it to the card over some lace and ribbon from my stash.
The greeting is from a Woodware Clear Magic stamp set FRCL078 Female Relatives.
Of course it just screamed out for some pearls.
I hope that you like it and feel inspired to join in with the challenge, after all there is a £10 Stampman Voucher for the winner along with the Blinkies for the Runners Up. 
Don't forget to check out the challenge rules on the sidebar.
Happy Crafting for the weekend
