Shabby Elegant Love

I have been on a 'Shabby/Nostalgic' card run over ythe last few days and wanted to share a card with you

using the 'Sent With Love' stamp set designed by Nina Brackett for The Craft's Meow

and the Lovely Labels 18 set , that coordinates with the Spellbinders Labels Eighteen Die, along with the coordinating Nestabling - now I have to say at this stage, I am loving NESTABLING from Want2Scrap, I am a 'pearl girl' anyway so it is an instant hit with me! 

 I have stamped the image twice, cutting it out using a Spellbinders Standard Circles SML Die.  The butterfly on the second image has been cut out, coloured with SU Chalks/Pastels and the wings popped up with some foam tape, for that added dimension.  3D Kindy Glitz has been added to give a little but if shimmer.

The DP is from KandCompany, one of my favourite DP's of all time, I use it sparingly! LOL!  A border from the Spellbinders Ironworks Accents Die has been added to the lower edge.  All of the Dies have been cut using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur - my favourite cutting machine!
