Card for the Charity Stall

I have used one of my new Michelle Perkett digital images for this card, coloured in with Promarkers and highlighted in a few places with Sakura Stardust clear pen.  A friend recently sent me a set of tapestry stamps - I'd always wanted one since I first started crafting but never got around to buying one - and the border/background is using various different VersaMagic ink pads with the different tapestry stamps.  I loved the way the border easily came to life - such fun!!!  I have punched the corners with my new X-cut flower punch which my youngest son bought me for Mother's Day and have put a little glitter circle in the centre of them for a bit more bling.  The card is finished off with some fibres, adhesive stones, pink peel-off line and a ticket sentiment from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop.

My card fits the following challenges:

Dare U 2 Digi Stamp - no patterned paper
Frosted Designs - Background Stamping
Pollycraft - Sparkly things
Jacksonbelle - Show us your new stuff (new Michelle Perkett digi image, new tapestry stamps from a blogging friend and my new X-cut flower punch from my son for Mother's Day)
Paper Cutz - Anything goes
Saturday Secret Crafter - Anything goes
The Pink Elephant - Spring
Totally Gorjuss - Something sweet 
Gingersnap - Frosting
Totally Papercrafts - Things with Wings
Challenge up your life - Flowers.
