Truly Scrumptious

I am really excited about this card as I am the guest designer for the truly scrumptious challenge. The theme is to use this sketch with your 'neglected stash'. I'm sure we all have plenty of that in our cupboards.

I used my very first rubber stamp for this card. My husband bought me a beginners kit for Christmas a number of years ago after my friend Maureen had introduced me to heat embossing. It was a Funstamps kit which included this stamp called 'bubbly clown'. I have not used it for ages. Now it is out the cupboard I think he will be used more frequently as I really enjoyed colouring him with my copic pens.

I used Funstamps 'Bubbly clown' stamp, Cuttlebug Dots embossing folder, copic pens, McGill leaf punch & Woodware flower punches.

Pop over to truly scrumptious and see the fabulous design team cards. There is lots of inspiration to be had.
