Daisy, daisy.....

I've used the sketch on Stamptacular Sunday for this card. I've used a new Sheena Douglas stamp, added some MS extra fine glitter to the flowers, used some Papertrey DP with daisy vellum over the top. I've had that vellum since 2006 as I remember buying it in a sale and I so had to have it - but too nice to cut up - but I'm not doing that anymore LOL! I didn't have a nestie big enough for the image so I used my one of my X-cut frames on my glass mat, and what a difference it makes to using it on self healing mat. I then distressed the edges of the oval with my new Tim Holtz gadget and blended some distress ink around the edges (using the glass mat - very versatile eh?). I've added some ribbon and a sentiment rub on from my stash.
I'm entering the card into these challenges:-
Stamptacular Sunday-sketch
Charisma Cardz-birthday
Cute Card Thursday-out with the old (the vellum)
MAWTT- Ring out the old ring in the new (the vellum and the stamp)
Phindy's Place-distressing

Anne said...

What a beautiful card, I love Sheena's stamps. And the trouble with liking something too much to cut it up is that eventually you will fall out of love with it. Use it and love it:)
