YES!!!!! I Made It + A Card

Afternoon Peeps.  I am one very happy lady today and couldn't wait to tell everybody but was told I wasn't allowed to announce it until it was on the Challenge Blog.  I am very pleased to announce that I have made the KAREN'S DOODLES DT after wishing to join them for yonks I have finally made it!!!  I only hope that I can meet the very high standards of the other girls.

A very different sort of card than what I normally make.

The above card is very different to what I usually make but I had this stamp plate in my craft box for ages but had never used it.  It was only because my craft club choose to use it last week that I said I have that one but it has never been inked.  I took mine along so there was 3 sets to share between the 12 of us.  This is one of two cards that I created with it.  Not that I did it at craft club may I add as I never seem to produce when I go as I do too much talking and I also get tired in the evenings.

The stamp plate is "Wine Label" designed by Sam Poole from Creative Expressions.  The images and writing has been stamped in "Black Soot" DI.  The wine glasses and bottles have been coloured with "Aged Mahogany" DI, I have also used Gloss Accents.  The writing I have used "Vintage Photo" DI over the top.  The wine bottle label is coloured with "Old Paper" DI.  The corks and sentiment I have used "Tea Dye" DI.  The sentiment is computer generated and I have typed in French  "Joyeux Anniversaire"  Happy Birthday.
