My first time playing at Simply stampin

******Do you fancy a crafty get away? I am arranging one for October this year and there are still spaces. Click HERE for details******




I could no longer resist the temptation to take part in the Simply stampin' challenge I found it a few weeks ago but this is the first time I have managed to get something made for it. I would not normally use these colours so am quite happy that I made this card :D
I think everything apart from the pearls that I have used for this card is from stampin' up. I started by using Wild wasabi ink to stamp the out line of the flower from the simply soft set and then Tangerine Tango ink for the second step of the simply soft stamp to colour the flowers. The ink around the edge is Daffodil delight. The sentiment is from the happiest birthday wishes set. The border is done with the scallop trim border and to finish I drew some faux stitching in wild wasabi using a write marker.


I am entering this card for the following challenges:
Simply stampin' challenge - Colour combo wild wasabi, Daffodil delight, Tangerine Tango and whisper white
Stampin' for the weekend - Anything goes


If you would like to get any Stampin’ Up products I can order them for you and you only have to pay £1 for postage rather than the normal £4.95. If you want to have a look at the current Stampin' Up catalogues you can see them all HERE
