Truly Scrumptious DT Challenge Card


Hi there and thanks for stopping by. Well today is Wednesday and that means it's challenge time over at Truly Scrumptious.


This week we have a fabulous sketch to follow by Heather and we also want to see some beads on your cards this time. Remember, only cards that follow the sketch and the additional challenge are eligible for the prize draw.

We are delighted to welcome back Whimsy Stamps as our sponsor. Whimsy Stamps is a family owned art stamp company dedicated to providing crafters around the world with whimsical and fun rubber stamp designs. And now Whimsy Stamps has a new digital collection available! Hop across to their website to take a look at their fabulous stamps.

For my card I've used the adorable Rainy Day Emma which is from the Whimsy Kids Collection. I've coloured in Emma using my promarker pens.

The DP is BasicGrey and the ribbon I've used is available from Nikki's new online shop.

The flowers I made myself by using the sizzix flower layers die cut, white kitchen towel and then coloured in using my promarkers. I then sprayed them with adhesive and sprinkled some Making Memories spotlight glitter. I used beads and wire to keep the petals together.

I hope that you get the chance to play along this week.

TTFN and TFL Hugs Michele xx
