CCT What's New?

Time for another challenge at Cute Card Thursday, and we would like you to use something new .. .. or perhaps a new idea. Our sponsor is Whiff of Joy, please stop by the CCT blog to read about the prize and see the rest of the DT's inspirational makes.

Well, Santa didn't bring me any crafty pressies, so I had to treat myself! This is little Polly digi from Wee Stamps and I've coloured her with my Copic pens.  Keeping to my resolution to use up what's in my bit boxes, I found I already had the pretty MD background mat cut and inked and after rummaging in another box of digi print outs came across the old piece of Cuddly Buddly paper for the background that would match it.

Here's the card so you can see:

To make the card 'special' I've matted twice, and added the faux embossed stitching to the white and printed layers.  The die cut doily flowers and text mat are from another MD set and the leaves are snips from another.  I've stitched around my image mat with some pink embroidery floss and added the little waste hearts. Nice one! well I think so, anyway.

The Marianne Design dies I used are:
background doily with raised embossed areas inked with blue chalk ink cut from LR0141
image mat cut from CR1248
flowers with raised hearts inked with pink Brilliance ink, and the text mat from CR1251
leaves snipped from LR0242

Thanks for stopping by, I am pushed for time at the moment with a doggy that is desperate for a walk but weather that is iffy, to say the least! Hopefully I can come back later and do some link ups and come see what you've created for our challenge.

Just seen that Moving Along With The Times have a photo of flowers and colours pink and aqua predominant so hopefully my card will be ok to link up with them.


  1. It is most definitely "nice one" Annie, as are all your cards. She is an adorable image and so beautifully coloured. Hope you managed to dodge the showers!! xx

  2. Wat schattig deze kaart. Lief afdrukje. Prachtig. Groeten Trijntje

  3. Ah this is so sweet, what a cute wee card. Love the faux embossed stitches, they look real. Thanks for playing on MAWTT this week, Hazel (Didos) xx
