Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

As you know I went for a visit to the Viva Decor offices last month.

I was very lucky to get to work with their products and made YouTube video's for them in English.
They should be out within the next couple of weeks.
Why not hop on over to the Personal Impressions blog today as I have posted about my visit.

Today's card is created using their products.

Step by Step

1. A5 white landscape card turned on its side to create a tent card.
2. First layer is Navy blue card.
3. Onto white card I used Relief paper paste through the Paris stencil.
4. Once this was dry I then distressed with Paper Soft-Colour walnut brown.
5. I then sanded back the stencil and placed the stencil over and distressed with Paper Soft-Colour in Indigo.
6. The tag was stamped with 3D stamp paint which gives texture and dimension in brown and distressed with the Indigo.  I then added this to the topper with a brad.
7. To finish off I added the pearl gems.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
