Ladybug Crafts Ink (aka Totally Ladybug Tuesday) Challenge 36 - Favourite Stamp


Oh my word, what a lovely response to last months challenge over at Ladybugs Crafts Ink Challenge - Summer Birthday's - I had a nightmare picking my top three, got myself all in a tizzy as every card was stunning in it's own right and I wish I could have given everyone a badge :-D

Hasn't time flown though, as it's time for another challenge, and like last month this challenge is running for all of August.  Kerry has chosen the theme of

Favourite Stamp

Now this was really difficult for me because I LOVE them all, and each for a different reason!!  Finally I settled on Bride Nikki, as she is so classy!!

I decided to do a white on white card, and then kicked myself as really struggled to get a decent picture :-(  I hope I finally managed to get a decent enough shot to let you see how gorgeous she is IRL

One thing I noticed as I was taking my pictures was that on the new Marianne Designables cut and emboss folder I used for the large panel, two of the bits that are meant to cut don't - the die bit just isn't there!!  I checked on the website and it's supposed to be, so I'm now in two minds as to what to do, send it back, or keep it!!  How very annoying!!  Mind you, if I hadn't told you there was a fault with it would you have noticed?!?!  Nope, thought not :-D  I thought I was going loopy looking at it!!

As this was WOW, I kept the rest reasonably simple, just some matting and layering, and a MS border punch and some ribbon
