Stamping Sensations Challenge - Anything Goes

We have the brilliant CRAFTY RIBBONS as out sponsor this month at Stamping Sensations and our challenge theme is 'Anything Goes'.
Would love for you to join us - please check out the challenge rules carefully as we are a stamping challenge and the stamp MUST be the focal point of your submissions!

It's back to another Christmas make for me this month - am trying my best to make a couple each month but sometimes the duties for Bowls England get in the way!
Once again the background pearlised card was a pig to photograph!

I used ink called 'Duck Egg' for the stamping - it was a pad bought in a bargain bucket for £1 and I love the colour!
Randomly stamping a variety of my snowflake stamps round the stamped greeting before popping on a few sparkly blue gems in the bigger of the centres.
The polka dot card was a snippet saved from something else, as was the punched aqua blue strip underneath.
Bit of sparkly edged ribbon to finish.

  1. A really classic and elegant looking card Viv.

    I see the Bally is back in training, so wish we could offload him. Had a special birthday card this week, a friend did the tour with Tommo and asked him to sign a card for me, pride of place now.
