A missing stamp found - but doesn't fit the card!

I made this card following this week's challenge from Friday Sketchers, the multiple layers appealed to me and I made the card before choosing the image to use.  The DP is My Mind's Eye, it came as a magazine freebie, the die cut shape is a Marianne Creatables shape, two ribbons are from Stamp Attic and the stamp is a Stampinbella Ketto.  Embossing folder by Crafts Too I think.

Shamefully, I came across a Ketto, uninked and still waiting to be cut out on a piece of EZMount, put it back where it came from and then decided to use it.  I couldn't find it anywhere!  I turned the shelves upside down and inside out before I found it beneath a storage box of inkpads and got it out to use on this card.  At this point I realised that it is a square shaped stamp that wasn't suited to the layout, which was not what I had remembered!  Oh well, I can make something next time with that one...  here's my other Ketto stamp which has only been used a couple of times before.

Challenges I'm entering:
Cute Card Thursday - out with the old - stamp is old and neglected, DP from last year, pearls so old I can't even remember buying them lol!
Friday Sketchers - sketch
Papertake Weekly - anything goes plus optional lacy (lacy ribbon?)
Pixie Dust Studio - 2 or more ribbons
Fab'n'Funky - anything goes
Tuesday Throwdown - embossing


  1. Adorable! Love the bright fun colors and that diecut is so cool! I had to laugh about looking for a lost stamp, sounds like me turning my craft room upside down, looking for a lost item.

  2. Very nice job!!! Love the swirl frame under the image - this looks so great!!!
    The colouring is fantastic- love the green so much here))
