not sure, what do you think?

Hello blogworld,

So do you ever get a card in your head that when you put it down on paper just doesn't work?

I had this fab idea, inspired by today's weather!, for a dinky little stamp that I've not inked before, made the card up and I don't think it's worked at all!

Anyway, card below for you to have a look see and tell me what you think.

Front shot:

Detail of image:

Arty farty - trying to show the glitter and 3d gloss

I used:

Stampin Bella - Izzy has a brelly
coloured with my Promarkers
Sentiment: There She Goes - Angel Mail

Nesties - oval and scalloped oval
Memory Box - picket fence and clouds

Anything else?
Glamour Dust
3d gloss

Yes, mmmm don't know.  It might well just get pulled apart and I'll try again.

Anyway it's pelting down here and the 'non-competitive' sports day at She Who Must be Obeyed's school has been postponed until next week.  So don't have to go get her until 3.30 as she's started Cookery Club, then we are rushing out again to Rainbows.  So busy, busy, busy!!

See's ya soon (and probably sooner than you think - I think I want to try for Little Fairies GDT but I'm not sure - so I'll post the card and then make up my mind!!).


A challenge, or two:

Sweet card Sarah. I love the rain drops, I might have to try something similar. The image is so sweet, how about stamping it straight onto the card?

I like it but think it just needs a wee bit of something more.
What about if you ran a bit of chiffon type ribbon up the left hand side...sort of just behind the left side of the image fame.

This has turned out great Sarah and I don't think I looked like that when I went out into the rain today- I was soaked. Sounds like a busy night ahead of you

My sentiments exactly. Doesn't matter how I feel I always have a song in my heart. Crating and singing - can't beat it.
Your card by the way I think is gorgeous and it does work so don't be hard on yourself. Gorgeous image and love the colouring.
Hugs Sharon. x
