Creative Inspirations Challenge DT Single Layer Card

Good Wednesday Morning from another very wet Manchester gosh it is still fairly warm here so guess we cant complain too much. Well as I said last night I would be back and so I am with another card which is completely out of my comfort zone a single layer card. Hope you like and must say it turned out better than i thought it would.

Our sponsor this week at Creative Inspirations is Handy Hippo who is kindly giving the winner a £10 gift voucher to spend in there store.

The stamp I received at weekend from my 2 friends who kindly went shopping forme at the Leigh Craft Fayre which I didnt make again this year. What a lovely surprise and I also got another from them along with my completed shopping list and some yummy extra's they knew i would want. White base card with a square frame of glitter made with double sided tape. Image stamped direct to card and coloured with promarkers. Glitter for the snow ice. Sutle shading of chalk for the back ground think that suttle camera didnt pick it up. Flower is one of my new dies isnt it yummy. Ribbon is the lovely candy I won from Trish at Crafty Ribbons. Sentiment isa peel off which matched the colour perfectly. Below is a close up of this cute little stamp.

Ok now you have seen me out of my comfort zone so how about you having a go these make fab quick last minute cards great for christmas when you need soo many. Thanks for popping by and remember Crafty Catz has a new challenge Friday so still time to enter this weeks
