My Time to Craft, Caardvarks, Daring Cardmakers & Charisma Cardz

Today is the day I can tell you my fab news!
I have been invited to join the Design Team on My Time to Craft Challenge Blog! Whoo Hoo!
Although, I am a Cuddly Buddly 'Fabulously Crafty Friend' and design cards for Cuddly Buddly products, I have never actually been on a Challenge Blog design team before, so it's really exciting!
This card is my first contribution for My Time to Craft in my new capacity, (makes me feel really special) and I hope that many of you will join in with the challenge entitled 'Rip It Up' . As you can see there is a fair bit of paper tearing in this... all around the image and the top of the piece of manuscript.
As I was making it, it evolved into compliance with a few other challenges, so I shall let Caardvarks know about it as it is a 'Tall' card and Daring Cardmakers asked for 5 of our favourite things to be used on the card. As this one was a special one for me I guess I naturally went to the things that I love using.
So we have 1. ribbon 2. a charm. 3. my favourite of all favourite background stamps - crackle, from Crafty Individuals 4. manuscript 5. distressing 6. overprinting 7. my Daisy stamp... my granddaughter is called Daisy so I have a real softspot for this one!
Charisma Cardz has the theme of Daisies for their Challenge this week, so I can't miss them out can I?
I hope you like it!
