C.R.A.F.T.Challenge 57

This week the theme for the challenge is a picture of a pretty gemstone ring,i used the purple and green colours for my dt card,i really wanted to do a tennis image as it is wimbledon and the colours are the same as the all england tennis club but i could not find anyhting in my stash so i used the free stamp that came with this months do-crafts mag,i love the sentiment it's so true

mini album

I have a gorgeous cosmo cricket kit that has some great chipboard albums in it,i finally got around to using some of it,the paper is so lovely i couldn't bring myself to cut it for ages
