Lots to Do Challenge Card


This weeks challenge over at Lots to Do is "Numbers". I have made a C6 card using some spare backing paper from the previous card on my blog. This is one of those cards I didn;t really plan, just came together as I went along. I stamped T/Holtz's girl image direct onto paper and masked. I then used my leaf stamp from Art Impressions around the mask with chalk ink pads. The other stamps on the card are from Paperbag Studio and I really do love this set. Finished off by going round the edge of the card with a brown chalk ink. This isn't the best piccie but its nearly midnight and the lighting isn't very good now. Hope you like my card, makes a change to make an older style although I am still very much into my Cuties!!

Wow, you have created great card. This looks very "artistic" can see that you have worked a lot with this. Love that colour scheme.

Hi Claire!! Nice to hear from you again....I love this little girl stamp!! You know she actually reminds me of my Gran...back in the "olden days" when they had those wonderful haircuts!!

I also love the cute girl stamp...funny my mum was colouring her in the other day...they make up a lovely card!

Great news about your son's school placement...I'm sure it must've been a terrible worry for you all about how it would go...but I'm so pleased for you that he's been offered a FT place!

Bye for now! bx
