An abundance of love and happiness

Hi Bloggers.

I'm in Preston today demoing at Inspirations from 10am. Hope to see some of you there.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I used Coconut White Card and inked through the Heart Confetti Mask with Antique Linen Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I then stamped one of the flourishes from the Embellishing Flourishes Stamp Set using the Antique Linen. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Walrus & Carpenter Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern and inked around the edges with Antique Linen using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Wonderful Beginnings Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Lapis Pearl Lustre Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Grand Stately Circles and inked through the die with Antique Linen. I added some Cream 3mm Self Adhesive Pearls to the dress.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Lapis Pearl Lustre. I cut it out using Spellbinders Asian Accents and inked through the die with Antique Linen.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Cream Silky Crush Ribbon. I cut one of the smaller motifs from the Asian Motifs die set and inked through the die with Antique Linen. I added a Medium Heart Dazzler.

I assembled the card as shown adding a Pearl Swirl and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Golden Pearl around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
