Brand new

A courier knocked at the door a little while ago with a box of Kanban card blanks, some of which have a pattern already on them - good for making quick cards for when I have a sale to raise money for Tearfund. So I couldn't resist making a card straight away ... so this is brand new!

I've used Donna's sketch for Sunday sketch and stamp 90:

And I used some blue spotted ribbon for Ribbon girl 15: blue and pink. Colours are also for Cupcake inspirations 144:

The pink edged card blank is the same on the back, which gives an extra nice look to the card. The blue edged oval is out of an A5 aperture card. I covered the edging by placing an oval template mask over it and stamping the Penny Black sparklers inked with Stazon blazing red (I always think this should be called pink rather than red) - having the template mask in place avoided the stamping going into the already decorated area.
This is also for:
