Slowly but surely I am getting better at stamping




Happy Monday everyone,

My day wasn't too bad for a Monday. It was my good friend's birthday and we all tried to make it a nice day for her at work. Simone loves owls and all the cards she got given had owls on it including the card I made for her. Even the jewellery she got given had owl designs, she absolutely loved all her gifts and I think she enjoyed her special day.

I don't like this photo of my card at all but its the best my husband and I could take this evening. I was hoping that the photo would have a softer look but after many attempts I settled for this photo. I absolutely love these colours together. I stamped the background with my sakura flower stamp and drew on the  stems, I think my stamping is getting better. With the butterflies I stamped plain paper with a watermelon  stamp pad then punched out the flowers on the stamped area, had to get innovative with getting the colour's just right. The sentiment is a rub on that I thought went well the card.

The Challenges I have included-
The Play Date Cafe-PDCC75
