The Crafting Cafe Challenge

Today it is my turn to share my DT card at The Crafting Cafe Challenge blog. 

This month our fabulous sponsor is The Stamping Boutique and we had the choice of some gret images to work with.

I chose Rocking Horse and came up with this card.

I printed the stamp onto cream card, having recoloured the outline to brown to give it a vintage feel. The backing card was embossed using a folder and I rubbed over the raised areas with a Distress Ink Pad. I used Distress Markers to colour in the image and then diecut it using an X-CUT die.

I created the embellishment using a paper flower, buttons and ribbon. The sentiment is stamped in Distress Ink and mounted onto a die cut.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will join us at The Crafting Cafe for our Anything Goes Challenge.
You have until the end of the month to enter!

I am entering the following challenges with this card:
Allsorts - Buttons and Bows
Brown Sugar - Anything Goes
Stampin With the Dragon - Anything Goes
One Crazy Stamper - Anything Goes

Where does the Time go??

Firstly a belated Happy New Year to you all!

I realised that it's been nearly a whole month since I've blogged! With Christmas and our new addition to the family  - a little puppy - life is hectic!

So I just had time to make a quick and simple card for Less Is More this week. The theme there is one layer hearts. I've had this stamp set from HunkyDory since June and its the first time out the packet!!

Back Soon!

I am also entering this card into the following challenges :

Inky Chicks - Anything Goes
