Tapestry Bouquet

I made this card to send to a friend and followed the sketch at CAS Colours and Sketches.  As everything came from my snippets drawer, I'm in the playground again at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white hammer
Stamps: Woodware 'Tapestry Bouquet' and Woodware 'Going to Seed'
Dies: Spellbinders Nestablilities Classic Ovals Large, Lacey Ovals, Standard Circles Large and Classic Scalloped Circles Large
Ink: Versafine Vintage Sepia
Colouring: Sakura coloured pencils
Other: Wink of Stella
Snippets: White card, paper and sequins 

Following the sketch, I cut a strip of pink paper and attached it to the card blank.  The image was stamped onto card, coloured, die-cut and layered onto a scalloped die-cut of brown card before being attached to the front of the card.  The sentiment was stamped onto card, die-cut and layered onto a brown die-cut circle before being attached to the card front with foam tape.   I used a Wink of Stella over the image and sentiment and attached three white sequins to the lower section of the card.
