Totally Papercrafts ,,,,, Clean and Simple ,,,

Hi all :-) I hope you’re all fit and well and looking forward to a lovely weekend :-)

Here on the TPC it is Vicky’s turn to host the challenge and she is keeping things Clean and Simple for you :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Mandi aka Enchanted Occasions
You can see her Stamping Up 'Beau Belles' Blog here

Mandi is giving away a fabulous SU prize called Perfect Punches worth £17.95 + some gorgeous papers too !! :-) Thanks Mandi xx

For my card I used my fab new ‘You’re the Best’ set from hero Arts. I stamped the rosette onto Bashful Blue SU card (bought from Mandi)and and again onto white card and cut out the centre part for the sentiment. I also stamped the ribbon onto a wide piece of crushed satin ribbon and cut those out too. I added star dust stickles and used a Viva Ice White pearl pen to create faux pearls around the centre. The paper is also SU from a Rainbow Sherbert pack , I added some faux stitching around the edge and used another Hero Arts stamp for the Birthday sentiment.

The DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiratioon so hop along to the TPC to see them Smile
