Dt card for A Passion for Stamps .........























Good morning everyone!

Hope you are all having a fab weekend....... the weather isn't that great is it, but then we should be used to that by now!! I'm excited to show you another DT card today that I've made for Ruth at A Passion For Stamps. I think this little floral stamp is just divine and really makes a statement! I was so impressed with the quality of the stamps when I received my DT pack - they are really thick and deeply etched so they stamp beautifully. I think it's well worth buying a floral stamp for your collection as it gives you so many options. In this case I've made a thank you card but you could also make a beautiful sympathy card which we all sadly need from time to time.

I used Basic Grey papers for my card and cut my image shape with the Nestie Label #2. The zigzag border was created using a MS border punch and the little flowers are from the MS Hydrangea punch. The sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub-on and the little black gems are from my stash.

Here's a close up of the beautiful flower........

















I'm off now for a blog hop so have a great day and don't work too hard.......

Hugs Tara xxx

This card is fabulous Tara. Sophisticated and elegant - perfect for a birthday, thank you or a sad occassion. What a beautiful stamp. I can see why Ruth picked you - a well deserved appointment.
Lol! I can't believe I'm on the same wavelength as you - I made a card in very similar colours last night, but I'm saving that for tomorrow's post. :o)
