Floral Delights

Well today has eventually arrived! My first active day on the MAWTT blog, when I post my first DT card for them which follows the theme of

Floral Delights

and was set by the lovely Hazel.  Thanks ladies for having me on your team, should be lots of fun working with you all over the coming months.

Today's challenge is sponsored by A Passion For Stamps, a company set up by the artist Ruth Hamilton, whom I first met and made friends with on Do Crafts many moons ago!  So one lucky winner will be getting a great prize from A Passion For Stamps.

Ruth was also very generous in giving all the DT a stamp of their choice to play with, thanks Ruth.  For my card, I chose the Thistle image coloured it with Promarkers and set it on a double sided sheet of paper from  the On The Edge range by Teresa Collins.  The ribbon is one I bought in Germany whilst on holiday last Summer and the doily & candi are just bits off my desk.

So that's what I did, now see what the rest of the DT made before joining us in our Floral Delights Challenge, the first of many great challenges in 2013.
