Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge 1

Good morning, I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I had a great weekend as I finally became the proud owner of a Martha Stewart Doily punch, I have wanted one for ages and just could not get my hands on one and finally ebay came to my rescue and a lovely lady in America did me proud, so expect lots of it on my cards for a while .. :) Stampin' for the weekend launched last Friday and the first challenge is called ' from dawn till dusk', it is a great colour combo of purple and yellow and the colours look great together, I was a bit surprised as this is not a colour combination I would have picked normally. There is a fab prize for the winner so pop over there and have a peek and also check out the gorgeous DT cards too ! I hope you like my card and please bare with me and my piccies at the mo as I have just started using photoshop to edit and I am still learning how to use it .. lol!

    I love your card! The layout is gorgeous. I love how you added the flowers and those cute little buttons to the image, they give such a nice touch. The yellow ribbon works so well with everything and the cute charm is a lovely finishing detail.

  3. Oh you lucky lady Suzie, I would be so chuffed too if I were the owner of a Martha Stewart Doily Punch. Your card is truly beautiful, I'm so jealous of the image though, not got any of the HS stamps and I love them, this one is adorable, coloured beautifully too. Eveything about this card is gorgeous, from the Laura Ashley papers, beautiful flowers and the lil charm hanging from the ribbon, fab, fab, fab. thank you so much for taking part in our first challenge over at SFTW, hopefully you will be able to join in with many more, good luck xx vicki xx
