Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge

My daughter asked me to make a card for her friend, Sam's birthday this week. I have used this lovely stamp Willow with Hot Chocolate from Whiff of Joy and coloured it with Promarkers.

I have had the lounge walls plastered this week and the plasterers left behind a roll of plasterboard tape, well you know what us crafters are like, waste not want not, so I coloured it with my Promarkers to match the card and used it as an embellishment. I don't think it looks too bad, do you? Another added bonus is that it is self adhesive so no having to tuck it in behind the backing paper.
I have also joined in with the Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge this week as the challenge was to use the colours Turquoise and Brown. Sorry about the poor photo but my camera has just died and I have had to use my daughter's cheapo one.
