Sweet Stampin DT card..

Good morning sweet stampers and my Saturday morning scheduled post. The challenge this week at Sweet Stampin is "Something Unusual" now that means you have to use something on your creation that you wouldn't necessarily use for cardmaking/crafts.

Now I was a bit baffled and was raking the house trying to find something but then I got some inspiration from Jenny and hey presto.....a little bandage in place of ribbon and the flowers have been cut from absorbant lint....they were tricky little blighters!!

We are sponsored this week by Tiffany Doodles...

Tiffany Doodles

I have used Echo Paper - Country Drive papers...very yummy. The stamp is Flower Girl from Sugar Nellie and I have coloured her with Distress Inks. I cut the flowers with my MFT flower trio die and stuck a pearl in the centre and a message to finish.

I have entered the challenges below....

The Sugar Bowl - sketch and make your own flowers
Paper Shelter - anything goes

Allsorts - free & easy

Ruby's Rainbow - flowers

2 sisters - happy birthday

Catch the Bug - anything goes
