I want to start today by saying about how lucky us crafty bloggers are...not only do crafters share their fab ideas but quite often they can be very generous by giving crafty goodies away just for commenting on blogs....of course when I say 'just for' I don't just mean 'just for' as most of us know how much time it takes to visit blogs and leave lovely comments. I am extremely grateful for the time and energy people spend visiting my blog and for all your support. I am grateful to those people who have given me lovely gifts when I have won a draw on a blog....the latest being Linda Simpson who recently did a giveaway. I have just become the lucky recipient of a stamp and a set of 22 Chameleon pens - how lucky am I? Thank you so much Linda for your generosity....I am very grateful.
My card today is made using my new AlteNew stamps. Change the colour, change how you stamp them and you have a completely different look! The background was stamped by stamping and masking. I made a mistake which is covered by the cut out flower and leaves....seemed a shame to waste the background. I ran a pearl band across the middlish of the card. It was all backed onto layers of purple, black and cream. The wording was from two of my trusty go to sets of stamps. I finished with some mauve ribbon and gems.
