My first card with the new {ippity} stamps...

Hi again everyone

As promised I'm back to share another card with you.  This time it is with one of the new sets by {ippity} called 'Now and Always'.  This is my favourite set of all of them.  I just love the way you can paper piece the flowers, FAB!!

This is my card;

For this card I used the Embellish Colour Challenge and the Caardvarks May sketch challenge set by Heidi Van Laar.  Now I've been following Caardvarks for EVER, but I have never quite got around to joining in on their challenges, so I am very pleased to have crossed something else off my list! 

Have you noticed I like my lists?!  According to one of those psychological tests that I took many years ago I am a 'completer' and a 'planner'.  Hmmm, not sure that always works in real life but there is an element of truth in it!!  I tend to just wing it a bit more now that I'm older, which just totally adds to your stress levels lol. 

So.. what do you think of this new YUMMY set then?  You likey??  I lovey!!!!  You wait until you see the rest of them!!!  If you haven't seen them yet then don't worry, I will be making some cards over the next few days that I will share with you.

This was a very simple card to put together.  I used October Afternoon papers, with some Bazill cardstock.  The flower was paper pieced and layered using dimensionals, which was one of the Embellish challenge requirements (not that I had actually read that, so I was quite fortunate that I pretty much always use dimensionals!)  The sentiment was from my new Waltzingmouse Fancy Phrases stamps.  Those stamps are fab, they fit into the Nestie Fancy Tags cutters.  Love them, and they have great phrases too that can be used on all sorts of cards.  To finish my card I simply distressed some of the edges using Tim Holtz tea die.

Hope you like!
