Hello everyone!Hope you're well?I'm on a roll with the challenges this week which makes a change lol. And i've managed to do two for this challenge just because I loved the sketch so much I just had to do another card in a different colour scheme. I put these card's together really quickly as I used a scrapbook kit which had everything already coordinated which is good for me as i spend ages trying to match colour's. I even decorated the inside with the exact same layout as the front they were that quick to do!And shock horror NO STITCHING!!!lol

Anyway waffle and onto the card which is for this week's FRIDAY SKETCHERS challenge which is a sketch I shall def be using again for sure!Absolutely loved it!

Hi there! Here is my very first stampin' chic DT card!I am both excited and nervous at the same time lol. I had so many idea's but decided to go for a simple look in the end as I really love these flower's from the CCSR Doodles set. I stamped them onto some doodlebug filagree paper in different colour's,cut them out,curled the edge's with a bone folder and layered them up. I think it look's so effective but so simple to do! I added some PM brad's to the centre's and finished the card off with a CCSR sentiment, some Anita's everyday sheer yellow ribbon and ofcourse a card of mine is'nt complete without a bit of hand stitching lol.

Well i hope you think I've earned my place as a Stampin' Chic Chick and that I've managed to inspire you???I look forward to visiting your blog's to see what you come up with!Click HERE to visit the STAMPIN' CHIC blog to see all the other fab DT card's. :0)
