Card for Marlene

Whoops hadn't realised this photo was so wonky until I uploaded the pic!
This card is for a work colleague, though I don't really know her very well which is why she's getting a simple bunch of flowers ... though I must say, this is one of my favourite stamps!

I've told myself that I'm not buying any more DP until I use what I've got,  and I've nearly finished this one.  Think the band will come out to play and fireworks if I do actually manage to use an entire paper pad!!  There may also be some flying pigs ;)

Image coloured with pencils. The name is stamped using a Block Alpha set from Sarah Hurley which I'm loving; I don't think I've used the Thank you stamp from a Tiddly Inks set before.

Sketch flipped from MFT Wednesday Sketch Club MFTWSC182 and inspired by Barbara's DT card
Totally Gorjuss #242 - pink and green
Simon Says Stamp Monday - I ought to use this more
Creative Inspirations #271 - clean and simple
CRAFT #265 - thank you
Crafty Girls #21 - anything goes

  3. I love this adorable stamp, too. The card is VERY pretty and I'm sure it will be loved.
    If I used a complete paper pad, there would also be pink sheep flying. LOL

  5. This is so pretty, Lynne! And well done for using up papers, I find it so hard, mainly because I keep getting new pads with the magazines I subscribe to!!

    Have a great week!
