Spotlight on Susan I - Winner of our Very First Challenge

Morning everyone!

Hope you're all ok and not working too hard...unless it's crafty work, of course.  :o)

Today I am spotlighting the winner of our very first challenge here at Scribble and Scrap...Susan I.

Here is the gorgeous card that Susan entered into the challenge and I think it has winner stamped all over it, don't you?

I absolutely love these gorgeous, vintage images and will be adding a lot more to the Scribble and Scrap over the coming days.  

Susan has used Pan Pastels for the background.  I am going to have to get some...I've thought about it for ages but didn't see me using them as I don't do messy stuff (not in crafting anyway) but I am seeing more and more uses for them now and this shows me that I NEED some!  

I think there's a little bit of everything on this gorgeous card.  I can see some embossing in the background and all sorts of bits and bobs amongst the embellies.  Susan has tucked lots of little bits amongst the flowers to add more interest and her great close up photos show all this detail beautifully.  I wish I had Susan's stash!  Lol. 

And I just love how delicate the die cuts and doilies are, and that paper is so pretty.  
Take a very close look and you'll be amazed at the amount of detail that Susan has got into this fabulous card.  I just love it!
Susan's blog is Rosebuds 'n' Ribbons.  Pop over and pay her a visit and see what other beautiful projects she has come up with!  

Congratulations on being our very first winner Susan...very well deserved!

Don't forget the fortnightly blog candy everyone.  There is a blinky in the right sidebar towards the top which will lead you directly to the Candy post with more details.  Don't miss out on your chance to win a £10 voucher to spend in the Scribble and Scrap  shop.  
Take care everyone & happy crafting!
