A Bouquet of Wishes....

Hi everyone

Its time for a new challenge over at Bizzy Becs and today I would like to share with you my card for this months challenge.





I have used the following:

Spellbinders die - A2 Devine Eloquence
Penny Black Stamp - Blooming Garden
Penny Black Stamp - Gratitude
Copic Markers
Viva Pearl Pen - Cream

The Spellbinders die is new to my stash and I have to say I like the card creator die.  After cutting the largest one in white card stock, it was then cut again in the dark pink bazzill and I then cut off the lacy border so that it sat inside the base.  I used the same pink to sit underneath the bottom layer.  The other  lacey layers were cut from Copic cardstock and then layered onto the base once stamped and coloured using Copic Markers.

Thanks for popping by.

Don't forget to join us for this months challenge and also check out the store as there an end of financial  year sale on now.

Until next time, Happy Crafting
