A Scrap Affair Challenge - Design Your Own Paper

Hiya! Just wanted to let you know that there's a new challenge over at A Scrap Affair, and it was my turn to choose the theme so I've chosen 'Design Your Own Paper'!

For my card I've used an Anna Griffin clear stamp for the background paper, stamped 4 times (this can be used to stamp as big an area as you want, you just have to line it up) then coloured with Distress Inks. I've chosen a sweet Sarah Kay stamp from Stampavie as the main image. I do love this little image, so cute with the kitten! The sentiment is a stamp from Paper Make Up Stamps. I've also used distress inks to colour the little girl and kitten image (these inks and the Anna Griffin Stamp I used for the background paper are available to buy in the Scrap Affair Online Store). The little flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the lace detail is old, french lace I had in my stash. I'm entering my card into the challenge at:

Cute Card Thursday - Lets Get Krafty
By the Cute & Girly - Anything Goes
Sweet Stampin Challenge - In the Garden

Pop over to the blog at A Scrap Affair to see the lovely prize and the other fabulous DT cards!
