The Crafty Pad Challenge...



Our challenge this week at The Crafty Pad is: "Nice and bright colours to cheer us up!!" and what with all these dark nights, dark mornings, cold weather sometimes we do need a cheer up!!
Also this week we have my lovely talented North East bloggy buddy and Papercrafter of the Year for SC&P 2008 - KATH as guest designer, she has done a fab card!
So I got out my brightest pink Bazzill and had a wee play!!
I used diamond check burberry gone wrong kinda design!!!! LOL by Tree-House Designs and just added little strips then layered embossed bazzill strips on top. I then paper - pieced part of the Faith Stamp and embossed with my embossing edge stips down one side of the card and the swiss dots folder down the other side.


Added flowers (from Ewonne's Candy!) to finish.


I really like these colours together!!

That stamp is starting to grow on me. The DT have some lovely cards (but yours is the best).
