New Challenge - Stampin' for the Weekend

Hello everyone, a Happy Monday to you all.

Last Friday saw the launch of a new Challenge called Stampin' for the Weekend. Their first challenge is a colour combo of yellow and purple.


Yet again, I've used the so sweet Sugar Nellie "Daisy". I'd already coloured her up so she was just perfect for this challenge.

I haven't added a sentiment - quite often I like to leave the front blank and put my sentiment inside - or I might add a sentiment to the front when I know what I will use the card for.

Here's what I used to make this card.

Stamp: Sugar Nellie "Daisy"
Coloured Cardstock: Die Cuts with a View
Coloured with: Copic Ciaos
Designer Papers: Dovecraft - Retro Florals
Flowers: Prima and Papermania
Ribbon: Anitas
White card: Rymans own coated card

Thank you for dropping by my blog and taking a look, I truly appreciate it.

Oh wow this is beautiful! I love that backing paper it is so much fun and the layout is great. I like the idea of not putting a sentiment on the front as you say then you can use it for whatever you need.
Thank you for joining us at stampin for the weekend and good luck with all the challenges
