Bouncy card and bouncy news

Today I am sharing a little happy card I created for my birthday card stash (for the sort of cards my beloved would approve as well...you know, with sentiment and all...).






But before I start rambling about the card, let me whisper to you that I have accepted a DT position with Stampin' For The Weekend ... how freakin' cool is that!!!!

And hereby I solemnly promise that I will NOT get into any new design teams for a while ... would like to avoid that "hamster in the wheel" feeling! lol

I will start in June so it gives me a little bit time to get all ready and set. :)

Back to the card - it's a very simple layout designed to accommodate my October Afternoon scraps.




The image is from Mo and was coloured with Copics, cut out, paper pierced and matted on black.

The buttons, ribbon and twine were all from my stash. Sentiment stamps are from Little Paper Shop.






Pease note I did some FAKE stitching! Ha! Cunning, cunning me!

I would like to enter that card into following challenges:
Allsorts - Birthday
Stamp Something - Celebrate
Practical Scrappers - Patterned Paper
Crafty Cardmakers - decorate inside

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
Hugs

Huge congrats on making the DT, Annika.. but I think I should give the congrats to responsibles of Stampin' for the weekend, because anyone should be more than happy to have such a super talented, wonderful card making artist on his team!!!
Hope you'll have tons of fun and don't get that 'hamster in a wheel' feeling *giggling about that*
