Green, Cute and Brads

This was one of those cards that came together rather quickly and has given me an idea for some more cards that I've been asked to make (at very short notice!) so that's what I'll be doing tonight!

The challenge on Cooking It Up With Katie is:

Cute, Green and Brads

So here we have it - and I hope its cute enough! The papers are from Funky Daze from Funky Hand and are all from my bits box. The brads are from my stash along with the string.

I've doodled a fine line and a running line around the edge of the card, plus a little inking and running line on the banners too. The sentiment is from the Our Betty - Special Day stamp set and I'm always a little nervous about stamping directly onto a card, but these stamps are perfect every time!

  • Papers: Funky Daze from Funky Hand
  • Sentiment: Our Betty Special Day stamp set from Funky Hand
  • Everything else: My stash
