Hiya Bloggers...i cant believe ive managed to make a card just for fun!!...but i really couldnt wait to try out my new SN Simply Sassy stamp...she's called Hippie Chick and is available from Funky Kits .... isn't she adorable...ive followed the sketch over at The Sugar Bowl ...(ive turned it on its side)...and ive managed to fit a few other challenges too...think i need to have more practice with the colouring but im pretty pleased with my first attempt :0)
Ive used K&Co papers that were a real bargain at our local craft shop just 30p per 12x12 sheet....ive inked the edges with Tattered Rose distress inks and distressed and stickled them too (stardust)..ive also added a little flourish to the corners again by stamping with the distress ink...the optional extra to the sketch was to add embossing so i dry embossed some Co'ordinations white wash card and sanded it a little...ive had it at least 2 years and rarely use it but i think it looks ok??...the flowers are from my EK Retro Punch and ive just added a few pearls and a little stickles to her headband, eyes and flowers..and of course ive coloured with ProMarkers ... the butterfly has been taken from a tag i had and ive used my new MS border punch too...so what do you think???.....
and the obligatory close up....
im entering the following challenges...
The Sugar Bowl - Sketch and Embossing
Cute Card Thursday - Out With The Old
Cupcake Craft Challenges - Something New

there is also a GDT call over at Simply Sassy...where the girls are just full of inspiration for you :0)...not sure im happy enough with this card though...may have another play over the weekend :0)
