A Few Challenges


A Spoonful Of Sugar (63) - Floral Fantasy

Crafty Creations (27) - Buttons

Simon Says (15) - Buttons & Ribbons

Stamp Something - Charmed Somethings

Cupcake Crafts (52) - Sketch + Brown/Blue/Neutral

Cute Daisy May (24) - Floral Fantasy

Stamp With Fun (19) - Birthday

Ooh La La (34) - 3 Buttons/2 Ribbons/1 Charm

The Pink Elephant (27) - Brown/Blue/Neutral

As you can see I'm combining quite a few challenges again with this card. I covered the base card with a neutral backing paper (wallpaper) and attached a strip of brown card which I edged with two ribbons, one with a charm attached (coloured with alchohol inks) and a bow. Next I coloured straight peel-off borders and placed these around the edge. I then cut and embossed the oval with the cuttlebug and placed the coloured digi stamp image on top and attached this with foam pads. I also coloured the peel-off greeting. Finally I added three prima flowers with button centres (coloured with alchohol inks) to the left and five more with gem centres to the right. Hope you like it.
