Truly Scrumptious #9

A big thank you to everyone who made cards for our last challenge (more than one fold). The cards you made were fantastic; so many amazing designs and a lot of work went into some very intricate cards.

We have two winners to announce this week and we have used Random.Org to pick both. Because Mister Linky joined us a bit late I have made sure that all entries linked through the comments page were also included in the draw. Our first winner who wins six of Christine Dark's fantastic digi images is No.27, Kate T. Congratulations Kate, please contact me so we can arrange for you to choose your images.

And our second winner will join the Truly Scrumptious team as our first Guest Designer. I am excited to announce that will be No. 39, Elaine (Simpli Crafti). Congratulation Elaine, please email me so I can send you your Guest Designer button and details for our next challenge!

Our DT member Beth has design a fabulous sketch for this weeks challenge; Thanks Beth. And our theme for this challenge is 'altered flowers'. I know how much everyone loves adding blooms to their cards but we would like you to only use flowers that have be changed in some way. You can use Primas, stamped flowers, punched flowers, any flowers you like but you must alter them in some way - stamp them, re-shape them, spray them, ink them etc.,etc.

We are delighted to welcome back Whiff of Joy Stamps as our sponsor this week. Do visit their webshop to take a look at the fabulous range of stamps and they have an exciting new release coming up on 14th June - a gorgeous 'Wedding & Baby' collection designed by Elisabeth Bell. The winner of this challenge will receive the 'Shy Willow' stamp:

I really have fell out with my camera - look at the colour of Doraline's dress - it is the same shade as the green in the paper IRL - in the photograph it looks like a totally different shade of green. I coloured her in Copics and cut her out with circular nesties and attached her to the card with foam pads. The large flower is cut witht the EK Success Retro flower punch, the smaller ones on the inside with the water lily punch - I stamped and embossed the flowers with the Stempelglede grunge stamp and cut the flourishes with the BossKut leaf flourish die. The sentiment is Inkadinkado, again stamped and embossed, I hand cut the corners and finished with some Basic Grey pearls.

Right I'm off now to try and sort my car out - someone ran into the back of me and demolished my boot and bumper a few days ago and the garage were supposed to phone me yesterday but didn't so I shall have to get on to them.
I shall be back later with some awards that are so overdue for posting I'm hanging my head in shame. I started sorting them out yesterday but ended up in such a muddle I decided a night's sleep first might be a good idea.
