Well I have been able to have a play this afternoon, after I did some cleaning up. My sister did not need me to today, she had help off another family member, so I have had a less stressful day.
Today's card is made with a beautiful Leanne Ellis stamp. This is not one of my own stamps, it's one of my friend Margaret's, she bought all 6 of Leanne's new releases, so how lucky am I that Margaret let me stamp them at our monthly Cut and Chat Craft Club? Thank you so much Margaret, you are a star, the stamps are gorgeous.
So, the image is LE, the papers are by Graphic (think it's an American paper company)and it's called Domestic Goddess. I thought this paper was a bit bright and a bit busy, but don't think it's that bad once it was cut up. The spotty paper is the reverse so that's worked out great as the colour is a perfect match. I have die cut the lovely Magnolia Swirl and added half a doily (which I have inked with Memento Sand coloured ink).
These beautiful flowers (given to me by my friend Margaret, thank you Margaret, they are just lovely.) are the inspiration behind the colour choice of this card, and thats what the Cuttle Bug Spot Challenge required.
I have used another one of those grungy hearts, added some raffia and a congrats sentiment. I have used some stardust stickles to give it a less grungy look, tried to bling it up a bit!!
