The Letter B

Good morning to you all! Today sees the start of a new challenge at Crafty Sentiments and the theme is The Letter B - so anything beginning with the letter B we want to see on your projects!  This is my first challenge with them since being invited to join the team as I was away for the last one! I am so excited - a big thank you for having me!! Enough waffling here is what I did:

As soon as I saw this stamp I knew I had to have her as I was a child of the sixties lol! She is Crafty Sentiments Primrose - Sixties Fashion available here.  I can remember having tights like this except mine were sort of pink and purple - made me look like I had been standing too close to the fire lol!  I have coloured her with Copics and a touch of Spica pen and what a joy to colour!  The papers are Carta Bella "True Friends".  I added some Viva Decor Pearl to her scarf.  The dies are SB Grand Nesties Ovals, Whimsy Corner Die, Joycrafts flower and Marianne leaves.  I have used my EK success border punch for the borders and also for the frame around the image.  The ribbon and blingy thing are from my stash.  Well I think I have loads of B's:  Bow, brad, bloom, border punch, bag, belt, blue and not to forget bling!!

To enter you do not have to use a Crafty Sentiments stamp or image but if you do then your entry will count three times in the draw! Just add a 3 after your name if you have used a Crafty Sentiments image or stamp.  The lucky winner this week will win:

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Love to Create - Punches and/or Dies
A Gem of a Challenge - Going Green
Totally Gorjuss - Ribbons and Pearls
Stampin for the Weekend - Diecuts/Punches
Crafty Ribbons - Anything Goes with Ribbon

Please go over to Crafty Sentiments and see what the rest of the fabulous DT have done!

That's all for me today, thank you for coming by and see you tomorrow! Take care xx

Gorgeous card. Love the bling on the bow.

Patricia said...

Good Morning Susan,
Glad you tried the Roses, I find the best tool is a "Glitter Girls" Ball tool. I have tried a few and that is the one I have settled for and bought a few. Good luck it is really easy once you have mastered it.

Patricia xx
