DT card - Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 1

Well here it is, the very first Crafty Cardmakers challenge! And here's my first Design Team card. The theme for the challenge is Blossoms, so I thought this stamp was appropriate - she's called Blossom and she's a Sugar Nellie stamp from Funky Kits. I've used promarkers to colour in the image, and then used a small matching flower stamp that I got in a Funky Kits lucky bag to make the backing paper - I've just stamped it randomly over plain white card, coloured with promarkers and then added diamond stickles to give it a bit of sparkle. The image is cut out with nestabilities scalloped ovals and I've edged the oval and the backing paper with distress ink. I've finished it off with a strip of self-adhesive lace.

Please check out the work of the rest of the fab design team and join us for the first challenge! Can you tell I'm a bit excited?
