Love, love this gorgeous Birdhouse stamp from Sugar Nellie!

The original idea was to use the lovely sketch provided by the Sarah Kay challenge.. which I thought was Camilla’s.. so sorry about the mix-up 😉 but when I coloured and cut this image I found it quite hard to be able to show off the sketch as this stamp really is LARGE, so I have stretched and rotated it a bit and  I will use this sketch again because it’s simply wonderful 🙂

The sentiment stamp is from a Hero Arts set.. papers are from BG and 29th Street Market, the felt flowers were in the Scrapagogo Card kit

Sorry the picture is not very good.. Raining and dull all day!.. There is also a new challenge up at Cute Card Thursday, I’ve not managed my card in time but hoping to make it when this busy last week of term is over.. again there is a lovely prize to be won so I hope you will be able to join in the fun this week!

Hugs, Marlene x

    absolutely stunning, love the elegance of the paper and those beautiful felt flowers, the image is so sweet and coloured to perfection as always!

    I do wonder why schools always leave so much to do in the last week of term, ours was ridiculously hectic too, you end up totally shattered by the time they break up!

    This is a lovely card. I love the way you color. Is this coloring done with distress ink? I haven’t tried that technique but am very tempted to. I love this new image. I ordered it a few days ago and am anxiously waiting for my package to come across the “pond” to Canada! Love your work!

  • Sandra

    Wowww! Wat een geweldige kaart Marlène!! Je kleurwerk is weer geweldig! Hoe je dat doe met die schaduw….pfff…ik moet nog even oefenen om het zo te krijgen. Je hebt trouwens weer allemaal gave kaarten gemaakt de laatste tijd, ik had 14 posts in te halen en stuk voor stuk weer plaatjes! Wat een lekkere hobbyplek heb je trouwens! Ik doe het nog steeds met een hoekje in de kamer maar ik vind het wel gezellig hoor, lekker iedereen om me heen en zo kan ik ook de ‘boel’ een beetje in de gaten houden 😉

    Fijn weekend!
    Liefs, Sandra
