Stamptacular Sunday!

 Edited to add: our new router has blown up and we were without internet again! After visiting the shop and explaining as politely as possible the problem, we no have a new singing and dancing router at their expense!

Phew, what a few hectic weeks I've had and way too much time spent in my car !!! Unfortunately my uncle died after a vey short illness (4 weeks) but thankfully he didn't suffer and the funeral was a fit sending off for him.

Because of the latter and the speed I had to travel to Ireland . . . funerals normally occur within 2 days of passing . . . I didn't post last weeks DT card for Stamptacular Sunday Challenge (which I had made). So before I get onto this weeks challenge, here is last weeks card which was based around a photo for our inspiration:

Stamps: Elzybells
Bias ribon & gems from stash

Now this weeks challenge over at Stampatacular is called "Fancy Folds"

Papers: Prima
Rub-on stickers: Bearly Mine
Stamps: Serendipity, dandelion clock
Ribbon and lace from stash

I covered my stepper card base with a softer paper from the same Prima pad. I then stamped the dandelion clock image onto a second paper from the same pad and inked the edges. Using a sheet of Bearly Mine rub-on stickers, (which I found in a plastic wallet in a cupboard . . .  not sure why I put them there!), I decorted different panels to fit on my stepper card. Finished with some lace and ribbon and a quick, easy card to make. I must now raid my sticker collections to see what I have as I thoroughly enjoyed making this card as it was out of the norm for me as not normally a sticker person!

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
