Exciting news!

Happy May Day everyone - let's hope we're in for a lovely sunny Bank Holiday weekend!

I'm so thrilled today to let you know that I've been chosen to be part of the new Design Team for Stamp With Us - I'm very honoured to be chosen as the entries for the DT call were many and all fabulous.

A big congrats to my fellow DT members too - Bekka, Jo, Jules, Kim, Sara and Steph - a fabulous group of very talented ladies!

Now.. time for a card! Here's the inspiration piece I chose for yesterday's Inspiration and Themes Challenge over at In Love With Stamping - wallpaper and fabric by Nina Campbell:



And here's the card I created inspired by the picture:


The background leaves are from the Level 2 Organic Grace set, the main image from Bloomin with Beauty - both were stamped onto Sahara Sand cardstock and coloured with Prismacolor Pencils. I love the effect of the white pencil used for the flower on the darker background.

Wishing everyone a very happy weekend!
