Bless My Bloomers!

Hi folks!
I thought I would share some of the other cards I made for the Cardmaker of the Year Competition over the next few days. We were asked if we wanted the cards made to be donated to charity, of course I agreed, so hopefully they will brighten someones day and raise a little money for good causes too.
This was my entry for the 'Stampendous' category. I scoured the world wide web for this stamp and was so pleased when I found it. It's one of their older images produced in 1996 and she's called 'Polly Potter'. I'm so pleased how this card turned out. I used a Kraft card blank and and some Green Doodlebug frills at the bottom of the card. I layered these on with sticky foam pads to add dimension. I cut the letters from my signature, funky foam using the Go Kreate alphabet dies 'Lingfield' (larger letters) and 'London'(smaller letters). I created the rainbow by punching lots of small flowers from coloured card (the punch is a Pinflair pincer type tool) and shaping each individual flower with the embossing end of the tool into my rubbery square sticky dot eraser (yay! I found a job for it). I stuck them into place using Pinflair dimensional glue gel. Polly was coloured in using Copic Markers.
Righto... I'm off to the school PTA meeting where we're decorating a huge Christmas tree. Hope the kids will like it in the morning.
Ciao for now!

Lovely card Sandra, must've taken ages to do that rainbow. I have this stamp too, I've had it years and never seen it used by anyone else before now. Nice to see how others use it.
