OMGosh I have succumbed to the little girl stamps!!! I have held of for soooooo long and then one day an online shop has a ridiculously great sale and I just had to buy some and give them a go! I don't know why I have avoided these type of stamps (the magnolias etc) maybe because I don't have anyone to give these types of cards to ... some how I think my 11 year nephew would just die if he got one of these ... oh my gosh I could give one to him just to annoy him!!! yes I might just do that! Anyway here is my card ...
her name is Brigitta and here is a close up
I have made this card following the sketch from Sweet Stop Sketches #114. The colour inspiration comes from Scrapbook Boutique - White, Lavender and Purple. I have incorporated the criteria from CRAFT #108 and that was 1 tag (title), 2 circles (under the tulip and the tag) and 3 rectangles/squares (the layered paper). I am also submitting it for the challenge at Paper Sundaes and naturally I chose purple and gems (liquid pearls) as my choice and also for Kaboodle Doodles - circles and dots - I love spots and dots paper!
