Stamp with fun #155–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  I hope you all had a brilliant weekend and are raring to go for the week ahead. Unfortunately it’s back to work for me after a week off but at least it’s a short week this week as it’s a bank holiday on Friday!. I’ve got a busy week as it’s my mother’s birthday tomorrow (as well as my SIL’s step-son) and as usual I’m running late and haven’t made their cards yet lol!

I’m here this morning to share my card for this week’s challenge over at Stamp with Fun challenge.  The theme this week is a really simple one “anything but an Easter card”.  Here is my card:

SWF #155 - anything but an Easter card

SWF #155 - anything but an Easter card (close up)

I was asked to make this card by my cousin to give to his daughter for her 30th birthday.  The image is a stamp from Crafts and Me called ‘believe’ which I coloured with promarkers and flex markers.  Isn’t it a beautiful image and a bit more grown up than I usually use but I love it and will definitely be using it lots.  The gorgeous papers are echo park from the ‘victoria gardens’ paper pad and the stunning die cuts are spellbinders from the ‘fleur de lis accents’ set which I recently bought from the we{heart}craft shop.  I didn’t add too many embellishments as the image was quite large and the paper was so pretty I didn’t want to cover it up too much.  The finished card is A5 in size.

The rest of the design team have created amazing samples as always, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out.   We really appreciate the lovely comments you leave for us.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Fairy tale challenge – everything goes

Stamping for the weekend challenge – anything goes

2 sisters challenge – birthday fun

Totally gorjuss challenge – swirls and whirls (if my swirly die cuts don’t count please delete me)

OSAAT challenge – something new (my stamp is new)

Stamptacular challenge – playin’ with pastels

I hope you will be able to join in with our challenge this week and I cannot wait to see what you create.  I will be back later with my post for this week’s cupcake craft challenge (although there is no card from me this week as it is the turn of Team B to share their creations) but I will be giving you full details of the challenge theme and prizes up for grabs.  Until then thanks so much for stopping by.
