Today is the start of a new challenge over at My Time To Craft. This week we have a challenge inspired by a set of pictures I saw in The Range. There was a gorgeous set of three canvases of one picture split into three. So I just wondered what it would look like using a stamped image on a card!


I really spent way to much time deciding what image to use for this, I wanted something with a lot going on. I remembered some Bugaboo images I won ages ago that I hadn't used.....so in the end I decided on this one! Oh what a faff this was to decoupage, but I think it looks ok!
