Dream Valley Challenge 8 - Stamp Something

It's time for a new challenge over at Dream Valley and this week our challenge is for you to Stamp something.  That's it!  No digital images allowed.  Anything you make must have some sort of hand stamping on it.  We are also having a DT call so pop on over if you are interested - you'll find the details here
We have two fabulous sponsors this week; Papermaze,  who are offering a £10 voucher for their shop, and Funky Kits who are offering a stamp of your choice.


For my card I used the fabulous Pin Up from Delarte Glamour Girls, stamping her in Versafine Vintage Sepia and adding a bit of colour to her dress with a pencil (Derwent Studio Pencils), then matted and layered the image onto some brown and white  card, adding lace to the bottom.  The sentiment is from the same set and I made a little place for writing a message.  The bg paper is from the PaperMania Exquisite pad with added  stamped roses from Laurence Llewellyn Bowen's Retro Rose collection in Stampin' Up Cake Crumb.  To finish off I added some tiny bows (tied with my Bow Maker) and some flowers.
I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
Sweet Stampin - Ooh La La
Stamping with Dragon - It's an Easel
Crafty Purple Frog - Things of beauty
Paper Play - Blossoms and blooms
Papertake Weekly - Pale, Pretty Pastels

Your E-bay purchase?!!!! Good to see you using it. She is very saucy isn't she and I note you didn't censor her, so does that make you the saucy one LOL.
Beautiful card.
Jog my memory if I forget to take part in this.
Off to bed now.
