Addicted to Stamps and More #85

Today at Addicted to Stamps and More we have a very special photo challenge celebrating International Women's Day on the 8th March. Here is the photo we have to inspire you:

 
Remember you can use anything from the photo that inspires you to create. It might be the colours, the silhouette, the date or something related to International Women's Day. I wanted to make a card that reflected how amazing and strong women are when they unite together and came up with this:



I had been playing around with ideas for sentiments to mix up to get the words I wanted. When I saw this card from Bev my ideas just came together and I knew I had to CASE Bev's card with my own twist!  I have used a mix of stamp sets to come up with this. I would like to point out that for this card I used faux sequins! How cool is that. These are from a the 'A Gift For You' set from Uniko Studios-these are I am sure will get a lot more use.

So Ladies....don't you agree, we are pretty amazing together!!

This week is also very special as we have Darnell as our Guest Designer. I am sure many of you know Darnell but if you don't please go and visit her blog here. I think she is a fabulous designer plus her posts are always such fun to read, you really shouldn't miss out on the fun!

We are very lucky to have StampArt Designs sponsoring us again this week. Yo could win 5 of their digis!!

And before I leave you to go and Stamp, I would like to direct you to our blog here so you can check out what the DT have made to inspire you.

Enjoy x

  6. This is clever on so many different levels, the way you made up the words for the sentiment, the black triangle placed at one corner, your interpretation of the theme... Fab!
