Clearly Besotted Challenge

Hi Crafters,

Today I am entering in to a challenge over on Clearly Besotted Stamps. The rules include stamping your own background and as I've just received my first order of these lovely stamps and dies I decided to make a baby card....

I used two of the stamps to create my background, matted and layered on to glitter and plain cardstock then stamped and die cut the pram, bottle and dummy. I tried some shadow stamping too on these elements. I finished the card off with a large yellow bow and used the die cut safety pin to add interest. Here's a close up....
The dies cut perfectly and released the cardstock with no trouble, I was very pleased with my purchase and will definitely make another visit to the shop soon.
Maybe the bright yellow of this card will cheer us all up as we seem to have entered winter already.
The weather today here in East Anglia is cold, windy, overcast and decidedly dreary, somehow we have leapt from August to November over the last couple of days.

See you soon
