DCM 'Postage'

I'm a little late with this weeks Daring Cardmakers challenge set by Rein. The dare is set around


I struggled for ages to think of something suitable as I was pretty sure I didn't have anything with a postage stamp in my stash. It's amazing what you can find when you have a good dig around your stash.

So here's my card....

I found the perfect PP from Fancy Pants, which is covered in postage stamps. I also remembered I had the postage stamp nesties! I used a sentiment from Pink Petticoat and added a gardenia blossom and tea roses to finish. Oh and of course a little pink butterfly too.

This card started off being quite dark with lots of black PP, which I just wasn't happy with but after playing around a little more I made it much lighter and love how it turned out. It's funny how you have an idea in your head and it turns in to something completely different. Please tell me I'm not the only one that does this!

Please check out the rest of the DT's amazing cards this week. We hope you'll feel inspired to join in.

Cardstock - Fancy Pants, Melissa Frances
Ribbon - Pink Sheer Ruffle from The Ribbon Reel

This is beautiful Keilly, it's funny how we forget what we have in our stash! I love that pink gardenia, and the paper and stamp dies are perfect!
