Especially for You

I made this card for the Cuttlebug Mania 'We Love to Stamp' challenge and Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge.  As the paper and card are from my snippets drawer I'm also in the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.


Card blank: 7" x 5" white silk 
Stamps: Woodware 'Tapestry Bouquet' and Clearly Besotted sentiment (magazine freebie)
Dies:  Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Ovals Large and Lacey Ovals
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Ink: Versafine Vintage Sepia
Colouring: Sakura coloured pencils
Other: Wink of Stella
Snippets: Pink patterned paper, brown and white card

I covered the card blank with pink patterned paper and stamped the sentiment in the bottom corner.  The image was stamped onto white card and coloured with Sakura coloured pencils.   I die-cut and embossed an oval and then layered into onto a die-cut lacey oval, this was then attached to the card with foam pads.   To finish, I used a Wink of Stella on the image and sentiment.

This is lovely Kath, I like the pretty stamp and the lacy oval mat and they sit beautifully on the pink patterned paper.
