LOC Vintage Bouquet

I am popping in with a quick card to show you as I am busy working on some New Release projects and some other exciting things that I cannot show you YET, but you know I will when I can - in the meantime...........

I can show you this card I created using the Layers of Color Gifts of Love art stamp set, illustrated by the lovely Nina Brackett.

If you know me at all you would know I LOVE layers, dimension and texture - but there are time when you just need a quick and easy card - well this is the set for you!!  The images are divine and only require the slighest colour, if any...

add a sentiment, using the Spellbinders Fancy Tags One, along with the Labels Ten for the image, all being cut with the Spellbinders Grand Calibur (so-o-o smooth!)

add some recycled lace and embossed DP and you have one very quick and elegant card. 

This card is for the following challenges:
One Stitch At A Time - Halloween or Autumn (Fall) - the colours remond me of autumn
Marks Finest Papers - Use lace on your card
Sweet Stampin - Strawberry Chocolate and Cream
Totally Gorjuss -  As you like it
Jellypark Challenges - punches and/or die cuts

You can see more of my projects in my Layers of Color Gallery, while you are there make sure you check out the other Design Team galleries there is so much inspiration waiting to be discovered, we are thrilled that Layers of Color is a Spellbinders Preferred Product Partner.
