Charms without squares....

..is the first challenge at a new challenge blog called Sukkersött. I seen it on the very lovely and talented Camilla's blog. I just love the style and had to try the challenge out!! Plus I have never used charms before so it was a new one for me. It is in Norwegian but I used google translate to get it in english and it is open to all! There is also a fabulous prize ~ the grunge collection from Stempelglede. I decided to go with a buckle card for my daughter's first day of school!! (She will be there all day!!) The main image I have obtained from a swap. The sentiment is from Scrappy cats and the flowers are from the grunge collection. (Love these!!) I stamped the flowers with twilight (CTMH) then went over them with some twinkling H2O's. The larger flower was stamped with distressed inks and then I went over the edges with, of course, my glitter pen. I love the way they turned out!! (Couldn't get in on the camera quite well though!!)

Paper: K & Co.
Ink: distressed inks, CTMH
Accessories: ribbon ~ Melissa Frances, faux pearls ~ K & Co., flower centers and charm ~ Micheals.


If anything you have to go check out the DT cards at this challenge they are all so stunning and breathtaking really!! So much detail.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone enjoys there Monday!!!
