Basket of Roses

Good morning All

I hope you are all having a good Tuesday so far.  I am doing a bit more tidying of my craft room and then will be colouring some stamps and digi's for cards I want to make just for me :).  Today's card is one I made yesterday.  I have used LOTV stamp called Basket of Roses which you can purchase here.
I have used Mike's Promarkers and isn't she just a sweetie?  I have Spectrum Noirs and will be using them for my colouring.  Anyway less chatter from me and here is my card.


Recipe & Method

1.  Base card is 8 x 8 Pearlescent card, I have matted silk art card onto the base and curved the corner with my X-Cut corner punch.
2.  I have used Spellbinder Scalloped Ovals and cut out 2 ovals using card stock from my stash and distressed the edges, the layer is paper from my K & Co stash.  Using Spellbinder Labels 25 die I have cut out the layer using the same card as the oval and distressed this too to define the edges.
3.  I have stamped the image and coloured with Promarkers and then cut out using Labels 25.  I distressed the edges using Dew Drops VersaMagic Sage.
4.  Before place the topper down I have used a strip of card from my Stash which is from Kanban.
5.  To finish off my card I have added a couple of pearl hat pins and a rose.  The buttefly is a die called Elegant butterflies from Whimsey stamps which you can purchase from Oyster Stamps.

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs
