Exciting News ...

Sometimes life can be very exciting and rewarding ... and the end of 2016 proved to be just that!  You see it went like this ... Addicted to Stamps and More had a call for new design team members ... so I thought I would give it a go and put myself forward for consideration ... guess what happened next ... they invited me to join the team!!   To say that I'm delighted and excited is somewhat of an understatement ... so you join me today for my first official post as a member of the design team hopefully to inspire you all to join in with the challenge.

The new challenge today is:

This is my card to inspire you:

I began by stamping and heat embossing the crocus before water colouring with distress inks.  I then die cut the images and adhered them onto the card base - one straight onto the card and the other two with foam tape to add dimension.  I then stamped the sentiment and considered the card finished!  A simple card created using few techniques.

I used:
Create A Smile - Crokisses stamp set
Distress Inks - Picked Raspberry and Twisted Citron
Simon Says Stamp - Handwritten Borders
Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle dies
Versamark ink
Versafine Onyx Black Ink
WOW Gold Embossing Powder

I hope that you will pop along to Addicted to Stamps and More and join in with the challenge.
