Fashionable Stamping Challenges - For a child

Hello, it's Sunday and another fab challenge at FSC. The theme for you for the next fortnight is to create something for a child. My two little grandaughters will both be having birthdays in the summer so I decided to make a card for one of them.

The stamp is Molly Blooms and one of several that I won at Sir Stampalot last year. 

Now I don't do cute so this had to be made to look 'vintagey', I think I succeeded. Papers are from the mariposa stack, desert blooms, DCWV naturals and costco - what a mix eh?

The shabby ribbon I died myself to the colours I wanted, the rosette is a TH die but I cut it narrower to make it smaller than the original and the bunting I made by hand.

The DT have created some magnificent samples for you as usual and you could be the winner of a voucher from Cottage Crafts (details on the main blog), but of course you have to be 'in it to win it' as they say, so I hope to see you over there.

I had a fabulous day demoing at The Art of Craft yesterday, lots of TH techniques using distress inks and some really lovely ladies who wanted to know more about how to use them.

 I have some amazing news to share, but can't let the cat out of the bag just yet.

Enjoy your Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit me.
