1st Sweet Stampin DT Card......

Morning all. Before I start with my card, I'd like to say thanks for all the emails I have received for a card for Daniel. Your generosity means so much and I am truly grateful to each and every one. The post is pinned at the top of my blog for a while yet.

Now back to todays card. This is my first DT card for the Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog. The girls there have been so kind and welcomed me with open arms. This weeks challenge is nice and easy "RIBBONS".
I have used my PB "The Three of Us". Coloured with Promarkers and a little bit of smooch. The papers are K & Co Wild Raspberry. The Bird is Stampers Anonymous. Stamped directly onto the paper and cut out. Other bits include, Prima Flower & Leaves, PaperMania Ribbon, MS Border Punch, Magnolia DooHickey Tag Die, Tattered Angel Glimmer Glaze, TH Bracket Die & a few Pearl Gems to finish. All the papers and image have been distressed with a Chalk Ink Pad.
I am really pleased with how my card turned out, sometime its nice to do your own thing. Could of ended up in the bin I suppose but I'm happy it didn't.
If you like to join in this weeks challenge you can find the link HERE.
The rest of my teams have gorgeous cards to show and we would love it of you could come join us or should I say Moral Support Lol.

Grenouille Greetings said...

Hi Claire. Welcome to Sweet Stampin! I am one of your teamies (on Faye's team) and I'm sorry for not saying "hi" earlier but I was on holiday. This card is so pretty! Love your double border punch and how some of your design elements are outside the square of the card (makes putting it in an envelope tricky though, huh!). Anyway - I have been away for nearly four weeks so I have lots of catching up to do and need to get started. I'm sure to drop by from time to time though! Warmest wishes, Lesley
