CCM Challenge 85

Happy Monday Everyone,

Time for another challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and this time the theme is BLOOMING IMAGES - make your flower image the focus of your card.

I've used a lovely Hero Arts poppy stamp which I inked up using 2 blue and 2 green Dewdrop inks. I then cut a square frame using a Spellbinders die, then stamped and mounted a sentiment.  

Easy peasy, 'cause of course I left it till the last minute to make my card so I didn't have much time to faff about.  





Our sponsors for this challenge are Crafts and Me who have donated 3 digi stamps and we also have a fabulous die set up for grabs too.


So dig out your flowery stamps and join us for a blooming good challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers!

Thanks for coming to visit,
Take care

Suze xx

There is a gorgeous freshness to this card Suze and very elegant.
Maybe it reminds us that Spring shouldn't be too far away.

Yah, okay, this might be EZPZ for you, but it would be plenty HARD for me. I'd be faffing right and left. This is really, really pretty, Suze! Well done!!

Love this Suze, the background colours are amazing. Is the floral part of the stamp debossed as it were, as I am confused how you got it to appear white and the other areas coloured. I assumed, on first looking, that you had stamped it in white!
