Another rainy day

Good Evening All,

I am sick of seeing rain, I don't think we have had a rain free day for over a week now.  No chance of there being a hosepipe ban in the North East of Scotland thats for sure.

Got a bit of my card making mojo back today, I downloaded the digi stamp used for my card about a month back and have never gotten round to using it.  So today it had its first outing.

I made the unusal choice for me and did not mat my image, I just felt the white against the purple and kraft made the image pop even more.

Supplies Used:
Crafts Meow - Free digi stamp
Kraft cardstock
SEI - Bridgeport Backing papers
Anitas Gems
Ribbbon from my stash
Corner Chomper

Challenges Entered:
