This is the card opened up...

Hi!When I checked out this week's Allsorts challenge 'No stamped image', I was chuffed to bits as at the moment this is right up my street!I've been having a play with my 'old style'(the style I used to do before i discovered stamping).I also wanted to have a play around with a different card to the squares cards i normally use.The card measure's 4x6 inches and fits in a standard A6 envelope.I cut the base card from a 12x12 sheet which means you can get three from a sheet!
I think it's nice every now and then to have a change don't you?So here's my card for the challenge!I've had the Ambrosia pad for ages and finally decided to chop it up does take me a while to part with me paper's lol.I doubt i'm alone???

IMAGE - Maya road chipboard star which i inked with a charcoal versa color inkpad

PAPER - Basic Grey Ambrosia AND Papermania textured cardstock

EMBELLISHMENTS - Papermania adhesive stones and thread from stash

SENTIMENT - Craftwork cards oval and Papermania alpha stickers

Thanks for looking!Hope you have been inspired?xx
