Wish me Luck!!

Good afternoon and welcome to my second post of the day!!!
I wasn't really going to share this with you all, but I'm now getting soooooooooooo excited I can't keep it all to myself any longer!!!!!
On Thursday of this week I am going to be doing my first 'proper' workshop & demonstration at a Craft Centre in Taunton - how nerve wrecking is that???!!!!
I have already posted a sample of one of the cards they want me to demonstrate - here it is again:

They want me to demonstrate another card so I have used the same stamp plate and similar colour scheme and have come up with this sample:

As this one fits the theme over at the Crafty Pad this week - at least 1 circle & the colour purple, I thought I would enter it into the challenge.

For the second card I stamped the image onto a circle (cut using a nestie) with Perfect Medium clear and embossed it with Silver Shine embossing powder. I then inked the edges with Dusty Concorde distress ink and mounted it onto a black scalloped circle - again cut using a nestie.

The swirl was also stamped with Perfect Medium clear and embossed with Silver Shine onto some purple pearl card and matted onto black card before being attached to a 6" x 6" white square base card.

The sentiment was stamped & embossed as before onto black cardstock and then trimmed and attached to the top left corner with 3D foam pads.

Well, off to have another practice at making both these again - as you know what they say 'practice makes perfect' lol!!!!!

Catch ya later!

Thanks for popping by.
