Beautiful courage x



Hello happy Thursday to you all !!

I am here with a quick post to show you a card I created, for my teenage neice, with a couple of the new stamps which I bought with some money my sister kindly gave me for my birthday (watch this space more creations with more yummy stamps will follow !)

I have been inspired to purchase some {ippity} stamps by the super talented Lucia from poppits cupboard who makes amazing original cards in her lovely little cupboard - so thanks Lucia for pointing me in the direction of this great original stamp company x

I used papers from my Victoria 7 gypsies paper pad and worked with an amazing sketch over at CPS card sketches. I often look at the sketches there but this is the first time I have joined in with the fun - so to them I would like to say thanks for a great sketch and all the fabulous inspiration you provide week after week x

Once I had chosen my papers I cut out the circle (with my trusty nesties) and trimmed it to size before stamping the flowers in the background on it, and the super sentiment over the top.
I done a little paper piercing around the edge to make my circle pop a little more and inked the edges of both the DP's and card base too.
I felt that my card needed a little something else so I diecut the cute little crown using my nesties and bigshot and added a gem.

Really that's all it needed - this paper is so beautiful I loved the sketch for it as it didn't call for me to cover it all up !

I would like to add this card to the following challenges;

What a fab motivational card for a teenager, I think we should send them to teenagers everywhere as it always seems a hard transition, and not just on the teenagers either. Thanks for sharing with us all here at creative craft challenges and good luck.
