Favourite Somethings

The challenge on Stamp Something this week is "favourites". This could be your favourite stamp, theme, papers, etc., so I chose to use my favourite layout. When I'm stuck on a card I always tend to revert to this layout as I love its simplicity.



I was asked by a friend if I could make an engagement card for her so thought I would combine it with this week's challenge. The image is Fluffles in Love from Stampendous and I've coloured it with PM's and used my Sakura glitter pen on the bows. Added a Woodware sentiment just below the image and doodled around the edges to create a border. Cardstock is Bazzill Bling but I'm afraid I don't know the make of the DP - I've had it for ages. Matted the top layer with foam pads and used SU slot punch to attach the ribbon from my stash. Used the Fiskars border punch on the bottom of the DP and the SU corner rounder. Finally, added some Prima flowers and some Papermania sticky hearts to the centres.


Back to normal today - both schools were closed yesterday so the boys were home, however, the snow has gone today so it's business as usual! Have a great weekend!
