Guest DT card for Creative Card Crew # 4

I was truly honoured to be asked to take part in this week's Creative Card Crew Challenge as a guest designer and have really enjoyed making my card. The girls have come up with some beautiful examples!

The theme this week is adding texture so I set to work embossing and distressing and also used some black raffia ribbon which is highly textured. The challenge is being sponsored this week by Stamping Bella and it was no trouble for me to use one of their images as I have just bought quite a few stamps from the new Ketto range. These are really funky designs and I think they encourage the use of quite bold colours! At last I got to play with my Basic Grey Ambrosia papers - these are very unusual in terms of the colour combos and are perfect for a funky card!

Image - Stamping Bella Ketto
Sentiment - Cuttlekids Alphabet
Papers - Basic Grey Ambrosia
Embossing - Cuttlebug Folder Circles
Dies - Spellbinder Butterflies
Punch - Leone Em Stamen
Flowers - Prima
Colouring - Polychromatic Pencils
Embellishments - Raffia Ribbon, Pins and Brads from my stash

I hope you can hop over and have a go at this week's challenge and look forward to seeing your entries if you do!

Don't forget about this week's candy giveaway over at Colour Create either will you!
