April preview

Good morning from a wet and windy Norfolk. You certainly wouldn't want to be dressed like Primrose today. Today sees the preview of 6 new fabulous rubber stamps  from Crafty Sentiments Designs. These will be released on 10 April but you have the chance to win 3 of them simply by commenting every day on the Crafty Sentiments Designs Monthly Challenge Blog where you will find inspiration every day from the DT. This is mine using Primrose Garden Flowers. I haven't made a stepper card for ages. I used Kars Country Rose papers one of which is glittered. I coloured the image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers and used DI tattered Rose around the edges. I always find decorating these cards a challenge as they don't look right overloaded with embellies so I have kept mine fairly simple.

Don't forget the monthly challenge of Easter is still running until 9 April so hop over and join in with that too.

Challenges:
ABC DT Anything Goes
Simon Says Use your favourite tool (Mine is my Bigshot which I used for the Nestie)
Kaboodle Doodles Anything but a rectangle
Incy Wincy Pastels
Secret Crafter Shaped card
2 Sisters Birthday Fun
