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.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.

Cute as a Button February challenge - Shabby Chic

February challenge at Cute as a Button is Shabby Chic

I have torn white card then sponged it with distress inks.
Printed Cute as a Button digi stamp IMG00143 Grow in the Lord onto white card, coloured with markers and cut it out.  
I printed the sentiment that comes with the stamp a little larger and layered onto the distressed card.
Layered the digi stamp on top.
Added ribbon, flowers, brad and punched butterflies.
Layered all onto torn dark pink card and then onto light pink card.

I hope you will go over to the Cute as a Button Blog and see the lovely work by the design team.
