The Stamping Chef Saturday Spotlight

Morning all and welcome to my new followers too :) 

Wow, look at me in the spotlight, not sure it's somewhere I've ever been before but the lovely Jackie asked me if I'd like to be in the spotlight at The Stamping Chef today and I was delighted to say yes.

Now I had a couple of Stamping Chef images I could use but I was asked by a friend to make a card for two of her friends who were getting married - and the brief I was given was that they were a bit quirky and they had tattoos so I asked in one of the groups I'm in on Facebook if anyone had any ideas what digi images I could use. Tamara from the Stamping Chef came up trumps and pointed me in the direction of this image which I have to say was pretty near perfect!



And then later on Tamara messaged me and asked when I needed the card for the ladies for and said she had an idea for something and would try and get it to me. And she created an image especially for Gillian and Louise - and I've used it for the card below! My friend was so happy with it as were the couple so our job is done! 

I wanted to keep a fairly simple card as there is so much in the digi image and maybe it's a little bit grungy for a wedding card but I think it suited the brief.
