My First Card

So inbetween everything else I have managed to make my first card for this blog.
Here it is:-

To make this card I have used Not Quite Navy cardstock matted onto a card made with Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the Not Quite Navy cardstock with a small flower stamp from the Little Flowers stamp set using Not Quite Navy ink. I then matted Bordering Blue cardstock onto more Not Quite Navy cardstock to go across the centre of the card. I then cut lots of small circles and made them into a scallop border top and bottom of this panel. I then stamped the flower stamp from the Seeing Spots set twice in Bordering Blue and punched them out using a punch, I again matted them onto Not Quite Navy Cardstock. I then stamped the Enjoy stamp from the Be Happy set using Not Quite Navy ink, masked it and stamped the Tag stamp from the same set over the top of it in Bordering Blue ink using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to get it in the right place. I coloured all the open dots in with More Mustard Pen and yet again matted it onto Not Quite Navy cardstock. I stuck a strip of More Mustard Grosgrain Ribbon across the centre of the panel and stuck the two circles onto it using the foam pads to give it a bit of dimension. I then added a Jumbo Eyelet to the tag and stuck that to the end of the panel with foam pads. I stamped another of the Little Flowers onto the Whisper White cardstock in More Mustard ink and just punched out the very middle of it and added it to the middle of the circle flowers with a small foam pad and Voila, a finished card. Here is a more close up photo...
