Helping Hudson, Week 2, Card 1

Helping Hudson is into it's second week and again there are 3 new challenges. Here is the first one:

Colour Challenge: When I first saw these colours I thought AWESOME for man card, but if you have a look at my blog you will see that I have gone slightly overboard with Fathers Day cards, so I decided to make it a PRETTY card. Now for all you out there that have looked at most of my work you would notice that I really don't do alot of bling ... Today the card has some bling, a bit of dazzling diamonds on the tips of the wings and around the scallop oval punch. I have also put 2 score lines on the Choc Chip cardstock at the top and bottom..

Anyway here it is: Stamp Set: Organic Grace, Sweet Little sentiments (both level 1 Hostess sets from 2009-2010 catalogue)

Card Stock: Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Bashful Blue (don't have Baja Breeze)

Accessories: Punches (Scallop Edge, Scallop Oval, Large Oval), Chocolate Chip Stamp Pad, Bashful Blue Taffeta Ribbon, Choc Chip 2.5cm Double Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Dazzling Diamonds, Papersnips, Snail, Sticky Strip, 2 Way Glue Pen

My mum LOVES dragonflies so this will be a little something for her xxx

Now time for the next challenge.
