Red and White with Ribbons and Pearls!

Hi there, I'm back again with another card to share! First of all, thanks so much for all your supportive comments from yesterday's post, it means a lot to have such caring bloggy friends! I'm so glad I have this blog as I find it very therapeutic making papercraft creations, it takes my mind off everything for a while.

I received some new stamps in the mail a couple of days ago, and for once I've used them straight away! The stamps are from the latest release from AnnaBelle Stamps - All Things Must Grow clear stamp set. I used Impress Poppy Red ink for the images and Versafine Onyx Black for the greeting. I used a Nestabilities die to cut out the image. My background is embossed with a Cuttlebug blossoms folder from the Asian set. Also used Martha Stewart border punch, ribbons from my stash, pearls, red and white cardstock.


I've entered this card in the following challenges:-
AnnaBelle Stamps - Say It In....Red and White.
CPS - sketch #201
Glenda's Random Amusing Challenge #100
- Use red on your card.
Papertake Weekly - Ribbons and/or Pearls.

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you are having a lovely day!
