Rejoice in the Beautiful

Hello friends, thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you are enjoying your weekend - whatever stage it is at.  We have had beautiful rain this afternoon, a lovely relief from the heatwave we have been experiencing - it is meant to rain through the night - we are hoping so - even with the thunder that is coming with it - the perfect background for creating! 

The image was sent to be from a very dear friend in Europe and is just beautiful - I am sure you agree on that.  It has been stamped onto white card stock and coloured using Chameleon Pens.  

Next it has been cut/embossed using the Nestabilities Classic Squares LG Etched Dies and the Platinum Die Cutting Machine.  Next it has then been popped up onto a pre-cut card base using the Spellbinders Nestabilities Art Deco Fairmont Labels Etched Dies. 

The image has been popped up onto the card front using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.  The sentiment from my stash has been layered onto black card stock and adhered to the card front.  I have finished by adding drops of Imagine Memento irRESISTibles Pico Embellisher in Tuxedo Black.
