Now this really is out of my comfort zone but it was quick , easy and doesnt look to bad!
Our new challenge at TRY IT ON TUESDAY is to make a CARD..... difficult challenge for me!.... inspired by a song. I have had this lovely CRAFTY INDIVIDUALS stamp for ages and it fits the challenge.... MEMORIES are made of this by Dean Martin was played at my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary party.... along long time ago now , as in April they will have been married 68 years... i had in my stash this card blank that has the preprinted border top and bottom.... i altered the colour a bit, and stamped my image straight on to the middle of the card..... i did mask the stamp a bit.... as i didnt want 'a corner and 'sweet'.
I coloured the image with pencils, added gems and a ribbon, for a quick simple card, that for a non-card maker isnt to bad!
It'll be great if you can find the time to join us this week, and check out the work of the rest of the DT.... they are all far more inspirational than me!

I shall enter this card at the following challenges also....
