Truly Scrumptious

Well I'm finally getting back to normal here now that the new digi collection and the stamp range are finished so I can start to do challenges again!!! Yippee!!!

I had a look in my sidebar for a Wednesday one and found Truly Scrumptious, I popped over and discovered that they have the perfect theme to go with the image I've been wanting to use.

The challenge is to make a card for a child and to base it on their sketch. The great thing about challenges is that they get you do things you wouldn't normally do. The sketch had lots of layers on it and I don't normally do that so it's been a great exercise for me. I enjoyed it too!
Here's what I came up with...

Before I carry on I must tell you, this is one of our Annie images that will be available to buy as stamps very soon from Charmed Cards and Crafts (you can pre order them here). Now, because they are still in production I'm using printed images for my cards. The image you see on my card is printed smaller than it will be as a stamp. I didn't think about it until it was too late.

Here's another picture of the same card to give you a glimpse of the inside

The tags, ephemera and paper are all from the K&Co Cut & Paste Collection
I was amazed at how many die cut shapes you get in the ephemera pack, it's packed full! Such good value for money I have to say.

So, here are the close ups....
