I'm so pleased to have managed to enter a card for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge this week as I've been short of time to enter recently. Their challenges are always so much fun and I really enjoyed myself. I was lucky enough to receive some of the new Ketto images (Stamping Bella) from my lovely friend Tara G, so I chose to work with one of these little cuties on this card. I have ordered some of the stamps for myself now as I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them!
I have to say that I wasn't too successful with my colouring - the card was super absorbant and I went out of the lines a bit but heh, not worth stressing about methinks. The brief for the challenge was a recipe - to use 2 papers, 4 embellishments and something ripped. Well I managed the 2 papers and the four embellishments are 2 stick on gem flowers, 1 ribbon and the sticky pearl effect to the skirt. Hmmmmmmm, didn't manage the 'something ripped' in its literal form but I hope the punched edge counts because it does tear into the paper....... alright, you'll have to work with me a bit on this, lol!
Materials: Image - Stamping Bella Sentiment - Scrappy Cat Butterflies - Daisy and Dandelion Papers - Basic Grey Porcelain Punch - Martha Stewart Arched Edge Colouring - ProMarkers Embellishments - Ribbon and Sticky Pearls from my stash Accents - Stickles Glitter Glue
I can't wait for tomorrow night's TV - The Apprentice makes its return and it's one of my fave programmes on the box. I wonder who will stand out this year....... and, more to the point, who will be the most annoying, lol!
I must say how much I appreciate you stopping by and if you choose to leave a comment then I'm always chuffed to bits. I also enjoy blog hopping so much and I'm continuously amazed by all that you create!
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
