Ruby's Rainbow News and Challenge

I've some exciting news to share ... I have been invited to be part of the DT over at Ruby's Rainbow Challenge blog.  When I was asked, it took me about half a second to say yes!  Today is my first challenge card with them as part of the DT and the challenge is:


Ruby's Rainbow challenges are set every other Wednesday morning - so don't forget to join us with your stitched card for this challenge (either real or faux).

So, for my card I have used a Whiff of Joy stamp - Willow Shopping - and I have coloured her with pro markers.  The papers are from DCWV and the flowers are from the Fizzy Moon collection.  I just added a little metal brad as the centre of the flower and the brilliant sentiment was a freebie from Claire Curd's lovely blog.  I just love all of the "Keep Calm" things that are about at the moment.  I cut the sentiment out with scallop scissors and stitched around it with my sewing machine.  I also did a zig-zag stitch all around the edge of the base layer.

I am going to enter this card into Samuel Taylor's August challenge as I used their sketch for my design.  They have a fantastic Martha Stewart punch and Gorjuss rubber stamp as a prize!

I'm also going to enter the following other challenges too:

A Spoonful of Sugar - Birthday card
Try it on Tuesday - Anything goes
Paper Playtime - Anything goes
Don't forget to join us over at Ruby's Rainbow - I look forward to seeing you there!
