Dutch Dare and Stamp with fun challenge card


Hello Bloggers,

yes, I am still alive, just not blogging much as life is pretty hectic at the minute (Seems to be a recurring theme in my life...).
Anyhow, I am here now and want to show you my latest card which showcases one of the new designs that Ruth from APassionForStamps has created. I simply love her flower images and this Fuchsia one is no exception.
I am entering it into the Dutch Dare challenge which has a flowery inspiration picture with lots of pinks in and the Stamp with fun challenge which simply asks for a birthday card.

As for the card, there isn't much to say as I kept it very simple to show off the beautiful picture fully and I just love clean and simple. The image is coloured with Prisma pencils and mounted onto Papermill cardstock that I treated to a bit of Martha Stewart edge punching (Layered Arches) and mounted with foam pads. The tentfold makes it a bit different and I added a beautiful satin ribbon in pink I got in my local haberdashery shop.

Hope you like it, please stop by soon again! If you are one of my american blogger friends, there will be a little give-away very soon, so keep a watch out for that!
