Pink Polka Dotted Flower

Welcome - I am always glad to know you have visited.

Every now and again I make a card that I am 'uber' pleased with, and this is one of those.


I was playing with my Layers of Color stamps and this is the result that I am so happy with. 


I started with this flower from the Merci Bouquet  set, stamping it randomly on a cream textured paper in Rich Cocoa ink, and then colouring it with chalks. The edge of the paper was distressed and sponged.


I took three polka dot flower images and the large dotted petals from the Polka Dot Love set and white embossed them onto pink vellum, then fussy cut and layered them together.


The sentiment is from the Happy wishes set and was stamped and cut with a  Labels 14 die from Spellbinders - I ran a gold pen around the  inside edge of the  die before I removed it.


The layered flower was mounted over ribbon, and the whole mounted onto a mid brown base. Pearls were added and the card complete.

I am linking this to:

Thank you for calling by - may your day be blessed.
