Thanks so much

I have been having a lot of fun creating lately, I have the luxury of being able to create everyday but seem to go into runs of being really productive.

Today I have something simple to show you, the simpler cards sell well at the two shops that sell my cards, which is great as it makes it easier to keep up the supply - this last month I sold 35 to one shop, 24 on facebook and over a dozen to the other shop - so my supplies were getting low.

This gorgeous image illustrated by NinaB Designs for Layers of Color Art Stamps was already stamped,  so I cut it out using the Spellbinders Standard Circle LG and layered it onto a Spellbinders Floral Doily Motif Die that has been sponged with Victorian Velvet Distressing Ink before being taken out of the Die - I love this Masking Technique!

The image has been coloured using SU Chalks/Pastels and a Blender Pen

A sentiment added from the retired Layers of Color Sentimental Banners clear art stamp set, illustrated by NinaB Designs. This coordinates perfectly with the Spellbinders Ribbon Banners Die.  All Dies have been cut with the Spellbinders Grand Calibur.

Finishing off with a lace bow and a white heart button from my stash.

Lots of dimension without too many layers, I was very self controlled in that department! LOL!

This card is for the following challenges:
Craft Room Challenge -  Shabby/Vintage
Paper Take Weekly - Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Kaboodle Doodles - Flowers
Make it Monday - always Anything Goes
