There's a Damsel in Distress and Some Rubber Dance Stamping happening here!!!

Heehee!!! Many of you will know BECCA from her blog, The Damsel of Distressed Cards.
This month was her birthday. And she's running a challenge!
She also has a list of her favourite things, so I took the top L picture,
which has her fave colour combo of purple and teal [!!!] &
that typography photo, along with her penchant for CAS cards:
 Becca also has a penchant for water and Gelatos. So I added that into the mix!
I heat embossed the sentiment first, on water colour paper, then smudged the gelatos 
to my heart's content.
Speaking of sentiments, that rather stupendous stamp is from a
giveaway win from Rubber Dance Stamps...which leads me to THEIR challenge!!!
I didn't go with the Optional theme this month, as we're in the middle of winter
& no school holidays or anything. I DID break out another of my Rubber Dance Stamps.
Or two!!!
I fussy cut that dancin' gal off a different bg.... yeah....still feeling SICK.
Then I popped her on that YUMMY background stamp also from Rubber Dance Stamps.
Added some sequins, Glimmer Glaze drops and twine..... & it's DONE!!!
Thanks for checking these cards out:)
Cheers, Lizzy ♥♥♥


  1. I adore your take on Becca's birthday challenge. You nailed the colours. Your tags are gorgeous Denise. Sorry I have been Mia these past weeks.
