About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.

Not just cards challenge 23 - card

It is time for another anything goes challenge at Not Just cards (but cards are welcome) and this is my second project for the design team.

Our sponsors for this month are:
Delightful Digis
Diddy Bag
Milk Coffee
SLS Lines
Julia Spiri

I received a lovely image to use from Milk Coffee
Tiffany and Birthday Cake

I embossed mauve card with cupcakes embossing folder and coloured parts with purple.  Printed Tiffany onto white card, cut her out and coloured her with purple markers and glitter pen and layered her onto mauve card.  Stamped sentiment onto mauve card and punched with oval punch, layered onto purple card which I punched with scallop oval punch.  Layered all onto mauve card.  Added ribbon, flower and brad.  Layered all onto purple card.

I hope you will go over to Not Just Cards and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

  1. Lovely card! I really like the embossing background. I love embossing...

    the link to our challenge over Sister Act Card Challenge doesn't work, because you have another http:/ at the end... in order to qualify for the prize you would need to fix the link :). xx
