Thanks to everyone who joined us on the challenge again last week,some great cards were created,hope to see you all again this week at "STAMP WITH SARAH KAY"I don't know why but i really struggled with this card,and to be honest i'm not happy with it now,i was going to bin this and start again from scratch,but didn't really have the time,so just had to go with this one.
The SK stamp i've used is a kiss for Chloe,coloured with Promarkers and Prisma's,matted and layered using nestabilities,then 3d'd on dimensional tape.I came up with the idea of giving him a ballon to give Chloe as well as a
The paper is DCWV.
The embossed "with love" is a cuttlebug border.
The hearts i've stamped on with Versafine Vintage Sepia from a wedding set,not sure of the make.
Brads and ribbon from stash,and sentiment is done with Doodlebud rub-ons.



Now Sandra, why an earth are you not happy with this card? Its simply gorgeous!! The combination of colours, the attention to detai, and the so adorable Sarah Kay image, your talent equals PERFECT! BIG HUGS Linda x

I think your card is great, love the top, great embossing, beautiful colouring. The word friendship on the DP is just on the perfect spot! I like it!! But I recognice your struggle, I think it is because the two ovals take so much place that it is hard to add embelishments.... But your result is great! Love from Holland,
