Allsorts "Inspired by Nature" Challenge

Good afternoon,

Here's my card for this week's Allsorts challenge where the theme is "Inspired by Nature".

I've used a gorgeous stamp by Magenta called "Lovely Meadow" (41017K). This stamp always inpsires me and certainly makes me think of nature.

I coloured the image and then used "Stamp and Bond" to cover it with Glamour Dust. At first this went on so thickly I could hardly see the image through it but after lots and lots of brushing I had an image I was happy with - so hard to photograph though!

Have a great weekend. I've recently started work as a part-time postwoman so I have an early start in the morning.

Hugs, Clare x

I love this Clare, the combination of the orange card and the image is gorgeous, I bet it looks even more stunning in the flesh. I don't know about you but I have a right game getting decent pics with anything sparkly.

Have a lovely weekend hun

Very pretty card Clare - I love the simplicity of the layout with the beautiful touch of ribbon! And of course the glitter behind the image is stunning!
