Winter Birthday Card

It is my Mum`s birthday next week and for this card I have taken inspiration from Episode 3 of the new DoCrafts Creativity TV Club. This is the first time I have tried resist stamping and am quite pleased with the outcome except that I wished the image had been a little sharper. I also used the sketch from Clare Curd’s demo card but have altered it to fit a 13.5cm square card blank. As the inspiration came from Clare I thought I would also enter it into her weekly craft challenge - I hope you approve of my efforts Clare and thank you so much for all your wonderful inspiration!
