Truly Scrumptious Challenge #23 and Cute Card Thursday Challenge #94.

Well Happy New Year everyone. Hope everyone is healthy, happy and well. My resolutions this year are to use up my craft stash, to use all the tools I have and to try and be a better blogger so as I haven't been here for ages I thought I'd start this year off with a couple challenge entries.

As I had to make a card for my Aunt's birthday I thought I'd use a challenge sketch. The Truly Scrumptious challenge sketch this week caught my eye so here's my card. The additional challenge was to use pink, green and black. I've used my new and first gorgeous stamp from Lili of the Valley - Faries on Tiptoe so am also going to enter it into the Cute Card Thursday challenge as well. They wanted something new on a card. I had to buy a couple of L.o.t.V stamps for a friend for Christmas and of course two fell into my basket as well!

I have stamped and coloured the image with Promarkers/Copics and then glittered her with glamour dust. She is matted onto octagonal nesties run through a cuttlebug tapestry folder (must use these more often). The paper is from Basic Grey and I have stamped flourishes from Hot of the Press in black ink. It's finished with pearls, flowers from Poppicrafts and a sentiment from Craftwork Cards.


  1. Beautiful card Sue! I love your new stamp, and the flourish border looks fab!
