IndigoBlu Favourite

Hi everyone, is it me or are the days speeding up? Everyday I plan to do so much and end up getting very little done. I'm using the shorter days as an excuse but I think it may be me slowing down with age!!

Anyways onto my card which I made using my favourite IndigoBlu stamp called Ella Bella. I had planned on stamping it in pink but the ink I have was just too light so I had to use black instead and brushed the image with pink chalk (unfortunately it doesn't really show up in the photo). The background paper is Hunkydory and the die is Memory Box 'twirling vine frame'. I made the flowers from snippets of paper using Cheery Lynn 'miniature rose' die with punched circle centres and the foliage is from the Memory Box 'fabulous phlox' die. Finally I added a sentiment from the Hobby House.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
IndigoBlu challenge 'Your favourite IndigoBlu stamp of the year'
Pixies Snippets Playground challenge 'week 108 snippets'
Stampin' for the Weekend challenge 'Happy birthday'
Lothian Crafts Online challenge 'Birthday for a female' (my 2nd entry)
Sweet Pea Stampers challenge 'Flower power'
Craft All Day challenge 'Handmade flowers'
Country View challenge 'Monochromatic' (my 2nd entry)

Right I'm off now to try and get some of those housework jobs done before we take my Dad shopping - or maybe I should just go and play with some of those half finished cards. Take care and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Lovely stamp, and I don't have any Indigoblu products..yet! This is such a graceful head image, and your pink dp was so soft against the black ink. The black image really did look quite soft & delicate so I think it worked very well on your card. Your flowers are lovely too, and I'll have to pay more attention to those sites where I order to see if I can purchase some of the Indigoblu stamps. TFS & having fun in the Playground. Hugs - oh yes, thanks so much for your visit too.

Pretty card with lots of flow to it. I like how you offset the stamped image from the frame. No being stuck inside the box (frame) for you. Very nice.
