There's a great new challenge over at One Stitch at a Time today. Our challenge for this week is "NEW" so you can interpret that however you want; it could be new baby, new job, new home or you could use some of your new stash that you have waiting to be used (like I did).
I decided to use my new Martha Stewart floral border punch which I really love, and the image is also a new one for me - don't you just love that hat! It makes a change for me to make a card without using my beloved pro markers but this image was just lovely as it was.
The hat is from an amazing new collection by Floppy Latte Designs available in the Stitchy Bear Stamps Store - it is an amazing collection of silhouette digis with a milinary theme. I just love them all - there's one to suit all of us ladies I'm sure!!!
I have made this card for my Nan who will be 86 (I think) next month - and probably wouldn't be very happy with me telling everyone her age! She always appreciates a nice handmade card and when I visited her over the festive season she had all of the Christmas cards I'd made her over the past few years proudly on display. My Nan likes feminine and glamourous so I'm sure she will like this card.
Here's what I've used on my card:
Image - Little Hibiscus - The Hat Series by Floppy Latte Design available from the Stitchy Store available here
Nestabilities scallop circle and Nellie Snellen scallop rectangle dies
Card and paper - DCWV
Woodware Grass paper punch
Flowers, feather, jewels and ribbon from stash.
