Penny Black Inc - Blooming Lovely

I am slowly catching up on Blog posts - with many pressing deadlines for work that I cannot show you until later in the year, I have been burning the candle at both ends to try and keep up with Blog Posts - not doing as well as I hoped, but I am getting there.

This card was a first for me - the first time I used a Penny Black Inc  dahlia dance image coloured with Spectrum Noir Pens - I showed the image sometime ago on facebook HERE, but took a little while to get a card created...

The gorgeous embossed and sanded background has been created using the Floral Jewel Spellbinders® 3D M-Bossabilities™ folder and Core'dinations ColorCore Cardstock®  - such a great effect when it is lightly sanded!   I have used the Spellbinders® Grand Calibur® Machine.  

NOTE: The sandwich for Spellbinders 3D M-Bossabilities folders in Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Die Cutting and Embossing Machine (stack from bottom up): B-Pink Embossing Plate, 3D M-Bossabilities Folder with Media Inside and D-Raspberry Adapter Plate. (taken from the Spellbinders Blog)

Lace, Seam binding, a button and Want2Scrap bling.  Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L - 3D Foam Squares and E-Z Runner have been used on this card.

  8. Your card is beautiful - but unfortunately cannot be considered in our Digital Delight challenge as you have not used a digital image as required.

    A fabulous card - I love the image and you have coloured it so well.
