Stamptacular - Charmed I'm Sure!

Been off work sick today, so tried to do a bit of cardmaking even though my mojo was having a nap somewhere lol! Not great when your head is like cottonwool!!

I hadn't got round yet to entering the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge, but this week's Challenge #4 is to use a charm on your card ... and as I have really gotten into charms over the past couple of months I thought I'd have a go.

I inked up my new Sugar Nellie stamp "Basket Full of Happiness" - isn't she gorgeous? Actually I inked her up several times because for some reason I couldn't seem to get a good impression .. but I got there in the end. I coloured my image with the usual watercolour pencils and put some li'l gems in the flowers in her hair ... aww! I cut out the shape using my large deckle rectangle nesties, and inked the edges. My papers are Melissa Frances (floral) and free with a magazine (striped); flowers are by Prima and Papermania; paper roses are from Hobbycraft; swirls were cut using my Spellbinders Shapeabilities "Doodles" and leaves punched using my Leone Em Ash Branch punch; lace was an RAK from Cathy; charm was from ebay shop Dolls Made Up; pearl gems from my stash. Sentiment stamps were free with this month's Creativity magazine (front) and WOJ (inside).
And here is the inside .....
Hope I feel a bit more like cardmaking tomorrow lol!

  3. Lovely card Pauline, beautiful colours and what fabulous accents..lover the charm detail.
    I have the same problem as Alison...if you check, most blogs allow open id...you just need to go to your blogger settings and change the details there...would make it easier for us wordpress bloggers to comment on your blog!
