PBSC June - Anything Goes...Optional 'Partial Stamping'...More Inspiration!

Happy Saturday everyone! 

We're back with some more inspiration for our current challenge, and the announcement of the DT favourites from last month's challenge!

Here are the DTs favourite projects from May's 'Anything Goes' (Optional 'Make Your Own Background') challenge:

Helen's favourite: #29 - Bonnie

Helen says: I love the bold colours and beautiful blooms on Bonnie's card...and how she used a baby wipe making her own background!

Jacky's favourite: #40 - Sue 
Jacky says: I have never seen these PB Teddy stamps before and I think they are just so cute dressed up in their best clothes! Love the fabulous scene Sue has created, especially the stenciled clouds x


Jenny's favourite: #17 - Laurie A
Jenny says: Laurie has created a stunning background and her stamping is spectacular:)



Natalie's favourite: #28 - Milla
Natalie says: I love the simplicity of this card and the floral background, the edging around the card is a lovely finishing touch and the little mouse is ever so cute!


Sylvie's favourite: #27 - Stephanie
Sylvie says: Love this fun stamp...the cow in wellies is so cute!
