For You A Present

Good afternoon to all my lovely friends and followers. I'm a bit late with my post today and  that's for a good reason While I was on holiday I got a top three at All Dressed Up Stamps with the Christmas card I posted on the 12th September. I was delighted then to have a message from the lovely Sheila asking me if I would be Guest Designer on today's challenge.

For my card I decided to use the gorgeous For You stamp that was from the September release. A while ago I bought a Dutch Doobadoo Shape Art Stencil Present from Noor Designs and  had not used it so I thought this would be my opportunity to give it ago. I really enjoyed making the design but it does take a lot of time and  paper !! but I think you will agree well worth the time and effort.

The Inside

Card Recipe

Dutch Doobadoo Shape Art Stencil Present from Noor Designs
Papers are Coffee in the Arbour Grandma's Old Porcelain Cups 12x12 sheet from Live and Love Crafts
White base card Tim Holtz
Stamp is For You from All Dressed Up Stamps painted with Derwent Inktense Pencils
Marianne Die Flower Leaf and Circle
Scroll die I think came in a magazine a while ago
Pearl string and small pearl flowers on sentiment are all from The Hobby House
Lace heart is from Live and Love Crafts
Flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts
Sentiment inside is from a Lillibet A Tale of Friendship stamp set I've had ages. 
Heart lace trim from Dainty Crafts Washington
It doesn't have a stand so I made a folding stand to attach to the back.

I hope you can go over to the All Dressed up Stamps Challenge Blog  the theme is always Anything Goes all you have to do is use an All Dressed Up Stamp if you don't have any there are some lovely freebies on the Blog page.
Enjoy your evening everyone hugs Carole x
