Scrummy Stash Cafe challenge

I'm hanging out for Funky Kits to release the new H & S stamps, however in the mean time I had a splurge last week at the big craft fair down in Exeter, I went on Thursday thinking it wouldn't be too busy as it's a week day, but it was heaving!!! I had fun, and spent a few pennies. Not content with the stash of Magnolias and penny Black stamps I came home with, I found myself on EBay buying 4 more, which arrived yesterday. They are all soooooooooo lovely, I'm wasting so much time just looking at my lovely new shiny bits, I've not used them yet!!! lol.

Anyway - I have also taken the plunge, and done what I said I "WOULD NOT DO", I was just not convinced by them, however, I gave in - having seen so many great cards on various blogs using the Forever Friends stamps, I have the will power of a wet Kitkat as that lasted all of 5 minutes, I am the proud owner of two!

Here is my first attempt at colouring the image, I used prismas and sansador, I'm not sure the colour is exact, but I'm not sure you will ever get it exactly the same, I mounted it onto purple card stock, ran a white bit of card through the cuttlebug swiss dots folder, mounted it onto matching purple card, wrapped some gorgeous ribbon I've had in my stash forever round the card, and added a craft work card sentiment.

The layout is based on a sketch used in this weeks Scrummy Stash Cafe challenge the challenge is based on a sketch, and to use some vintage lace or edging, I don't own any lace (will have to sort that out) so I have used some old ribbon instead!

Gorgeous card Sal. I too wasn't keen on the FF stamps at first but now I love them after seeing what others have done with them! I still don't own any though. My new PB snowy stamp arrived today though!:-)
