Hero Arts Pairing Up Challenge

Morning folks....time to share Card Numero Dos for the Hero Arts Pairing Challenge with my Hero Arts Flickr buddy...the lovely talented Agata and boy oh boy was this one a struggle....lots of binned efforts before I settled for one which I have to say I am not entirely happy with but I'm sure you will agree things don't always go according to plan in this card making malarkey.
We decided to go with the gorgeous Wild Flower Garden Cling Stamp this time and here is the gorgeous card that Agata made.....

and from me.....

Hero Arts: Wild Flower Garden
Antique Engravings
Sentiment: Thinking Of You
Ribbon from stash
Pearls from Hobby House
Distress Inks...Scattered Straw...Wild Honey....Brushed Corduroy

Once I had stamped embossed and coloured my mat.....I was struggling to find something I liked for my background so in desperation I just ran Timmie's fabulous Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink Pad over the linen cardstock picking up the detail and as if making the card wasn't bad enough.....getting a half decent pic in this grey and dismal weather was another marathon and just to add insult to injury I notice that one of the little pearls on the butterfly body must have popped off on it's jaunt around the house and garden and just noticed my mat is looking a little skewiff....well just tilt your head slightly and it should look straight.
Will be back tomorrow but with goodness knows what.....depends if Mr Mojo decides to play ball and just another...
sleeps to go....blimey if I am excited now what am I going to be like when it's down to the magic number ONE
Hugs Kath xxx
Edited to add: well blow me over with a feather....what do I card disaster just got a little tweet over at Hero Arts on Twitter
