Cute Card Thursday

This week's theme for the Cute Card Thursday blog is.....


Things That Grow


The obvious things would be plants etc but really there are lots more things
that grow, we look forward to seeing your own interpretations!

So me not being very imaginative thought straight away of flowers. I'd just received the stamp set that I've used on my card in the post, it had flowers, so it was a good excuse to try it out.

I've used my new papers from Stampin Up and of course the Stampin Up set, Oh So Lovely. To colour the image in I used my SU markers and blending pen. I then did the same image onto a scallop and put it over the original image. I sponge inked the edges of the scallop and the edges of the original image piece. The image and sentiment were layered onto more SU papers.
Then to finish off I added some brads and ribbon.
Papers:- Stampin up - Fall Flowers
Stamps:- Stampin Up - oh so lovely
Sentiment stamp:- Stampin up - Simply Said


You really should go over to the Cute Card Thursday blog and take a look at the DT's work. It's gorgeous as always and very inspirational. And then you can always join in with the challenge!


Forgot to say I used a sketch by Tiets to do this card, she has some fab sketches on her blog , thank you Tiets.
