This week at Dare You To Digi Stamp we have a very special challenge sponsored by Post-Pals,with a lovely prize on offer,in order to qualify for the prize which includes a Martha Stewart punch your card must be sent to child via the Post-Pal website....not alot to ask really :0).

The dare this week is "GINGHAM and STITCHING",real,faux...etc,your choice.
I've used an image of Chris's (Sketching Stamper) again this week for my DT card "Bearing Love" coloured with Promarkers and Prisma's,cut out and mounted onto nesties using silicone gel.I've cut is original ballons off and added my own (i haven't made them myself) to give some more dimension to the card.
The "Gorgeous Gingham" papers are Funky Fairy's,i've sewn the two colour ways together using my sewing machine to form patchwork,the trim in the corner and along the bottom i made using a Martha Stewart punch "Checker Border".
Sentiment is Papermania...Clare Curds sentiment set,ribbon from stash.
My card will be going to seems he likes balloons...hope he likes these :0)

Hope you all will join us this week for this very special challenge...look forward to seeing all your lovely creations,thanks to everyone who played along with the dare last week.
Hope you all have a lovely day
Take care
