Hi Bloggers.

Before I share today's card, just wanted to let you know that there's a couple of videos that I did with Sue Wilson on her YouTube Channel. CS Shimmer Paint - here, CS Mica Powders - here and CS Sparkle Texture Paste here. Would be great if you have the time to go and have a look.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Milk Card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Rambling Blossoms Embossing Folder and inked around the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the Pawprints on My Heart Clear Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Majestic Circles and inked through the die with Black Soot.

I cut a Couture Creations Moulin Rouge Die out of Black Card.

I made a bow using Sue's Dotty 3D Bow Die Set, inking around the edges with Black Soot before construction.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Black Pearls to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Ivory PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

    Love the Rambling Blossoms Embossing Folder, so pretty & noticed that both yourself & Sue use it quite a lot on your cards, I must get it to add to my collection.
