Truly Scrumptious and Creative Card Crew

Hi all I managed to make this card the eve of my birthday for two challenges the first being Truly Scrumptious based on the sketch and Creative Card Crew the theme being Polka Dots. I have for so long wanted to make a card like this where the sentiment was the main image and when I received my stamps from Stamp Galaxy I was able to do so. I have used Stampin Up backing papers received from blogging buddies in USA in a RAK I love them and don't really like to use them but in this instance they were just perfect. The shape was cut from my Cricut and was white but I coloured it with my Promarker Raw Sienna and in real life it looks like a soft suede. I stamped the image in Versafine Onyx Black and stamped a floral leaf round the one side in Versafine Sepia. I added a few flowers and voila. I think I took the photo a bit off angle because it looks a bit crooked but it is quite lovely in real life. I hope you like it hugs to all.

Well you've done a great job on this with the phrase being the focal point. And, a great big Happy Birthday to you and I hope you receive some handmade cards to celebrate. And, by the way, since you've created a separate blog for your awards, I've left you one on my blog to be added to your accomplishments.

Another gorgeous creation Lorraine, not in the least but spoiled by a slightly wonky camera angle and I think we've all been there and done that....
