Happy 4th Birthday Bugaboo Stamps!


Quick post today as it's nearly bed time and I've finally finished this card!

Over at Bugaboo Stamps, they're celebrating their 4th birthday with a week of challenges which ends on Saturday. I had planned on doing all five of the challenges but unfortunately haven't had time but I have managed two!

The first one I have for you is the first challenge from Monday which was Tic-Tac-Toe

and I chose to use the diagonal going from top right to bottom left; Bugaboo Image - FREE - Ribbon and here's the card I made:

I've used one of Bugaboo's Sunbonnet stamps and this is Sewing Sunbonnet Thimble. I love these Sunbonnet's they're so gorgeous! I coloured her in a while ago so I can't quite remember which Promarker colours I used.
The lace ribbon is from my stash and the papers are Beach Bliss from Lili of the Valley. I die cut her out with Spellbinders Standard Circles Large and Small and used X-Cut star dies (the 'FREE' in the grid) to cut two stars in the turquoise and tan papers and stuck one the right way and one the wrong way up to make a sunbeam pattern behind her.

I also followed a very useful video on YouTube on how to tie a double bow with a bow maker and it's come out quite well considering I don't own a bow maker and was using two pins and a pincushion!

I'm also entering this into the latest challenge over at Papertake Weekly which is 'Bow Dies' where you add a bow and use a die or just do one or the other.

Right, I'm off to bed and I'll have the second of my entries for the Bugaboo birthday challenges tomorrow.

Hope you like the card!
