I just love Kazan's sketch for this week's challenge and just had to try my hand at it. On an interesting note, Kazan is an ex South African who lived in Pretoria and now resides in Denver, Colorado.
Then there was yet another itch I had to scratch and that was to ink up one of my new stamps which I won for my Male card entry over at ABC Challenge. This is the yummy stash which our local postman delivered last week. Thank you so much Cathy ... the goodies are extra yummy when you see them in real life.
My new Sugar Nellie 'Giddy Up' stamp even comes with its own adoption certificate ... how cute is that ... and he was really easy to colour in with my H2O's. I used a few of my favourite EK Success punches to create the garden scene.
Thank you for your valued visit, hope you are not disappointed.

  1. Oh Desire what a gorgeous card, the garden scene at the bottom just sets it off, and love the blackground, it brings the flowers forward. Yes, I would say it has the "WOW" factor
