Vintage garden .......

It's a sketchie free for all over at Papertake Weekly and this is my card based on Sketch No 77.  There are some great cards this week so please try and pop over for a visit and we look forward to seeing your creations - there is a super prize for the lucky winner!

I used one of my lovely new Stempleglede Vintage Garden stamps which Andrea got me for my bithday last week - this one came all the way from Australia!  as they are difficult to get hold of.  The background paper is Tilda from Pandura all edges inked with walnut ink and stickles added, it's very good quality and lovely to work with.

I coloured with Copics and added Stardust Stickles to the flowers and the birds eye.  I made the flowers with small and medium Magnolia dies, distressed the edges with walnut ink then added more Stickles.

I used cream satinn ribbon, 20mm and 12mm cream cotton lace and Sugar and Spice self adhesive pearls, all from The Ribbon Girl

See you

What a stunning card!!! I love all the lace and flowers you added. Can I ask please, "Are the flowers from a die or punch?" Looking forward to seeing your upcoming creations as your new followers. Just discovered your blog while blog hopping. Happy Easter.
