Thanks at Fashionable Stamping Challenges

Hello there my lovelies, we've got our new challenge starting over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this month Esther has chosen the theme of 'Thanks/Gratitude' for us. As always our lucky winner will receive a $20 voucher from Flonzcraft ! Don't forget that you do need to ink up those stamps to play along, no digis allowed!

I've used some old paper scraps from a 12x12 kit that I thought would be perfect with this lovely Snowdrop image (from Imagination Crafts). This is the first time this stamp has been inked up although I've had it for a while. I've used kraft card for matting and layering and lots of distressing with a craft knife and also Gathered Twigs distress ink. The image was stamped with versamark and embossed with Mercury Grey WOW EP, as was the sentiment and I've added some colour with Twinkling H2os. You can see the sparkle of the EP a bit better in this pic.

I've also used ribbon, lace and pearls from my stash.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Allsorts: ribbon and lace
Crafting by Designs: Anything goes
Crafts Galore Encore: Anything goes
Crafty Catz: Flowers
Creative Fingers: Anything goes
We Love Vintage: Anything vintage

Thanks so much for visiting today
