GDT Spot at Penny Black@Allsorts

 Good morning. Can you believe that it's August already????!!!! 
Before you know it - it will be the 'C' word - yay!!! 
So as it's the first of the month that means it's time for a new challenge theme at  
 and I am honoured to join the lovely ladies as GDT for this month.
So the new challenge is 
couldn't get any easier than that now could it?

And here's what I decided to make:
and here's how I did it:
I started by creating my own Design Paper - using a Creative Expressions floral mask and inking through it with Victorian Velvet and Bundled Sage Distress Inks. I also inked the edges of the cardstock after I removed the mask  - with the same inks - to soften the edges.

Image - Betsy Bluebell - coloured with Distress Inks
Bazzill Cardstock - punched with Martha Stewart Scroll Lace border punch
Two matching lengths of silky seam binding
Flowers from stash and a couple of gorgeous crystal pins to finish it off
Challenges I would like to enter:

Sir Stampalot - Whatever you Fancy
Colour Create -  Pink Green & White
Craft us Crazy - Anything Goes
PaperPlay - In the Garden
Papercraft Star - Anything Goes
Anything Goes - Pick of the Bunch - Flowers

Please pop over to the main challenge blog and take a look at the fabulous inspiration from the DT and to see all the wonderful prizes that the sponsors have donated this month - wowzers!!!!

Thanks foe popping by.
Have a fabulous day.
