Farnborough Goodies

I have been having a play with a few of the goodies I bought at the Make it Craft Show in Farnborough last week. For this card I used an Impression Obsession stamp set which included the butterflies and the damsel fly, (which is fact hiding behind the ribbon), I managed to purchase it for the princely sum of £3.50 in a reduced bin, the Memory Box poppy die (isn't it gorgeous) and the tag die which is from a Papermania set. In reality the ribbon is a really close match to the kraft card, but the lighting has done a little something to alter it.
The text stamp in the inked panel is from Inkylicious and there are a few random splats from my SU French Foliage set. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up.
I used the colours from Colour Create this week.... and what a fab combo they are... blue, lilac, white and kraft. A little emboss resist and a touch of ink dusting and there we are!
It doesn't always happen, but this one pleases me!
I'm going to be weighed again at Slimming World tonight... I'm dreading it!
Fingers Crossed everyone!
I finally managed to reach the milestone of 2.5 stones lost. It's taken me 25 weeks... onwards and upwards!
