OSAAT Challenge # 228 - Something New

Good day to you all and thanks for dropping by.  My card today is my DT card for the One Stitch At A Time  challenge.  The theme is "Something New".  Now this can be new baby, new house etc or just using something new, which is what I have chosen to do.  My "something new" is my Lattice Heart Striplet die from Sue Wilson.  I actually got it at the NEC in November but since this is the first time it has seen daylight I consider that it definitely counts.  The image I have used is "Clowning Around" by BB Kakes which is available from our sponsor  Stitchy Bear Digital Stamp Outlet

My Card

7" x 7" base card - Anne Marie Designs
Design paper - Nitwits Pastel Dreams from LOTV
Raspberry Bazzill Basics - from stash
Squares - Spellbinders
Lattice Heart Striplet - Sue Wilson
Paper flowers and pearls - from stash
Computer generated sentiment.

I decided to keep it fairly simple and also flat - good for posting!  The flash seems to have leeched all the colour out of the picture so I will attempt to correct it or try taking another picture without flash. Unfortunately the days are so dark that flash seems the only option. The turquoise pearls look cream here.

We would love it if you could enter our challenge.  This is the prize you could win - so why are you hanging about?

HI Christine, don't you just hate this time of year for photographs? I got a really cheap little light studio that folds up in a bag, from Amazon last year. It comes with lights and is really useful. Your card is gorgeous, love the cute image! Hugs Carole Z X

Oooo Super Duper creation Christine, love the new die you have used I can see so many uses with it so will have to keep it in mind for when I eventually get round to some craft shopping in June :) :) Yep, this card is perfect to pop into an envelope but at the same time is no less beautiful with fewer embellishments, gorgeous creation :) :) :) big hugs, Jane xxxxxx
