No peeking, Nic!


Apologies for the blank card piccie but my posts show up on facebook and my SISTER is NOT ALLOWED to peek at this one until it's her birthday!!!! You've been warned, Nic! :-)

So this is what it really looks like.....

My sister really loves driving around in her little car and I was determined that these Nostalgia Classic Car stamps from Papermania would not only be used for male cards :-) This is the first time I've used this one. I've actually stamped the image and sentiment (Papermania again) twice - once in hot pink and then again in black slightly to the side. I think you can just about make it out in the photos....

The papers are from Daisy and Dandelion Picnic Patch and the embossing folder is from crafts too. The flower was made following this tutorial from the fabulous Sally - thankyou!!! And then I just added a few gems from my stash.

Sketch N Stash - Fab sketch, unused stamp and neglected papers
Sarah Hurley - Handmade flowers
Meljen's - Stripes

Right.... Little man's asleep so I've got a chance to do my housework undisturbed - oh, the joy!

Love 'n' hugs,

Lovely card! I really like how you've "shadowed" the image in hot pink, it does make it pop off the patterned paper! Great job!
Thanks so much for playing along at Meljen's Designs this week!
