Cute Card Thursday - The Two of Us!


Here is my card for the challenge at Cute Card Thursday. As soon as I heard that the thme was 'The Two of Us' I immediately thought of my Lulu and AJ 'The Kiss' stamp. I know from your comments that it's one of your favourites in the Dinky Dots stamps range! I'm into paper piecing at the moment so I did lots on this card. I stamped onto three different papers and used a roll of sticky dots which my friend gave me to piece it all together, I've not had sticky dots before but I have to say they are perfect for paper piecing. When I've paper pieced the image I like to do some shading for definition, so I used some distress inks in brown and red shades. I matted the image onto some of the new funky Papermania christmas papers and added a Penny Black sentiment.
Thanks for taking the time to look as always!
Love Becky xx
