My first time at a card challenge!

Whoo hoo! I have had a lovely morning sitting playing with a card, I have made it for the very first ever card challenge that I have ever entered( I hope its good enough!!) I have recently become a follower on totally awesome blog that belongs to a very, VERY talented lady called Elaine. You should check out her colouring skills....they are breathtaking! Anyway, she has a challenge blog and this week it was to ink up an old stamp and make a card.




Well, I only own 2 single stamps( one swirl and one is the new personalised stamp I just got) and a set of sentiments that I bought just before Christmas,( crikey, I sound like a right saddo don't I? LOL) So I borrowed one from my Mum's crafting box( it says Judikins on the side of the stamp) and have made this card. I have used some Basic Grey 'Blush' on it, some Prima blooms and pearls, a strip of glittery lace and some lushy Ice Stickles. Anyway, i am quite pleased with it, but I know it won't be anywhere near as good as the other entries....but hey, we all have to start somewhere don't we :)

Have a smashing evening,
Warmest wishes
