Stamp Something ,,,,,, Flowers, Buttons and Sparkle :-)

Happy Easter !! I hope you are all enjoying the long weekend and looking forward to all the choccy we get to eat on Sunday. My fave is Cadbury’s Whole Nut so I am hoping the Easter Bunny will bring me a HUGE bar of that rather than an egg !! :-)

Anyways ,,, time for a new theme over on the Stamp Something Challenge :-


We are sponsored this week by Funky Kits so a lovely Sugar Nellie on offer for one lucky entrant :-)

For my card I used this very cute Upside Down image by Diane Duda ,, I love her designs !!:-) I coloured her with Copics and inked around the edges with Stormy Sky Distress ink. The papers are my current faves ,, Neighbourhood collection from Crate Paper ,,, gorgeous I think, this was a gift from Joey and Scoopy from Crafty Emma’s Store , the flowers have little button centers too ,, perfect for this challenge !! I used some green SU ribbon and matching card for layering. The flower is a Fabric Bloomer from Prima, it comes complete with the button and I used a Martha Stewart butterfly and a leaf frond punch. I added Star Dust Stickles and Robins Nest dew Drops for the sparkle Smile

The DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the challenge blog to see them Smile

Love this card! It doesn't need a sentiment at all... your colours & the image just spell 'happy' & 'it's a great day'!

Kimmi said...

Fab card, she is brilliant! Wish I could still do that with a smile on my face. I end up wincing at my back and I'm only 27 lol
Great colour combo and I love the flowers!

I've gone through all my cards today and I have yours which you sent me in thanks for the candy. I have put them all up in the loft just now so I can keep them safe from Poppy's hands. As she's already torn up some of my cards I've either made or received. Little terror she is!
