A Little Grace


Yay.... the weekend.  The house is clean and tidy, the trimmings away, and boy does it feel bare! :) 

Now, not a lot of people know this.... (I tend to keep it quiet :) lol ) but one of my middle names is Grace. (ahem). So when I saw this gorgeous little stamp over on Funky Kits  and found out she was called Grace, knew I would have to have it!  Im pretty sure I was just as adorable as this when I was little.. (not!) :)

Its one of the beautiful new images from Sugar Nellie's Home Grown range and available as a rubber stamp or a digi-download.  This is using a digi-stamp, as they are a cracking bargain at £2. 

I tried for a clean and simple look for this card, and this is probably as clean and simple as I get!  I used Kanban backing card, K & Co DP, and Bazzill basic blue card.  I embossed the white background and punched out the ribbon border and added some white pearl card-candy.

I will be entering this card in the following competitions:

The Sugar Bowl - Great sketch by Marlene and great prizes.  Extra option - Embossing.
PaperCraft Planet - Sugar Nellie Forum - Use something new.  I just treated myself to this little SN!
Sundays with Crissy - Digi image and Ribbons
Cute Card Thursday - Out with the Old - I used some quite old Kanban cardstock.
Moving Along With The Times - Ring out the old, Ring in the new.  Old cardstock, shiney new stamp/digi
Paperplay Challenges - Clean and Simple - I think this looks really clean, and felt quite simple and quick to do.
Do You Stack Up - Cute as a button
Rainbow Ladys Challenge - Its all new to me - I used my new digi-stamp
Stamp Something - Use a Digi Stamp
Stampin For The Weekend - New and Blue
Saturday Challenge - Tons of Texture
2 Sisters Challenge - Gettin Girly
Craft Your Days Away - Anything Goes
Crazy Challenge - All things New - new stamp

Thanks so much for looking

Paula said...

intriguing star layering? behind that sentiment, very effective especially if you think of Grace as "a little star"........... Love the blues & that embossed panel behind the image really does give it a summer feel.
