FINALLY a card!!!


It has been a week since my last card and I was itching to make one so bad so here is what I made today. It is for someone but I won't mention any names because she reads this blog! Maybe once she gets it she will post on her blog....but if not I won't be offended...promise! I used a CTMH stamp I received in my blog candy from
Jenn over at Craft Royalty Corner...first time I have been able to use it and isn't it darling? I love it! I distressed the scalloped edges with my ink...thought it turned out neat...I tried to put deeper marks/dots to make it stick out a bit instead of all the same around the edge. Paper was from my stash and I made the flowers with my cricut and dabbed with black ink on a sponge applicator. Did some faux stitching around the outside. The one thing I wanted to add was some sparkle to the dots on the dress but somehow misplaced that part of my stash....guess that means I should tidy up the room a bit huh? I mean I looked everywhere I could think of but it is still missing! So maybe that was a sign that the card was fine just the way it was!

Challenges:
Get Sketchy#7 - Sketch plus distressing
Simon Says- Stitching
Stamp Something- Favorite layout or sketch (fav layout so far and I just found it!) So simple and clean looking!
Cute Card Thursday#79 - Use the colors black and yellow
Polka Doodles- DIY flower
