Stamp With Us Challenge 1

YES! I've been eagerly waiting for Stamp With Us to offically launch - I love Stampin Up! products, so having a blog with challenges etc is going to be soooo much fun!

I wanted to make something in the Cath Kidston shabby chic style, so here's what I came up with for Challenge no.1:

Items used:
Whisper White card stamped with Botanical Blooms in Real Red and Old Olive
Layer of Bashful Blue spotty paper (distressed edges to look like fabric)
Layer of Whisper White card with hand drawn lines in Real Red and Bashful Blue (distressed edges to look like fabric)
Faux stitching in Ballet Blue
Real Red Grosgrain ribbon
Paper Flower (Green Tara)
Ballet Blue stamped Circle of Friendship sentiment on Whisper White card

I thought of Cath Kidston as soon as I saw the picture and before I looked at the writing! Inspired use of stamps.
