I'm so Sorry

Hi Bloggers.

A bit of a Burst of Splendour today -

Milk andCustard Card on this one. For the background, I randomly stamped the one of the stamps from the Heartfelt Creations Dahlia Bouquet Stamp Set using Scattered Straw Distress Ink. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Hyper Magical Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time and then inked around the edges with Scattered Straw using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the image from the Heartfelt Creations Dahlia Cluster Stamp Set using Coffee Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured the image in using Distress Markers - Mustard Seed and Crushed Olive. I cut it out using Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles and inked through the die with Scattered Straw. I cut the 2 largest dies in the same set out of Custard Card and again inked through the die with Scattered Straw.

I stamped the sentiment from the Heartfelt Creations Classic Message Stamp Set using Coffee Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Stately Circles and inked through the die with Scattered Straw. (the next photo looks an entirely different colour - goodness knows why!)

I ran the Scattered Straw Ink Pad over a length of Cream Crochet Ribbon and tied a bow. I added a Fancy Pearl Embellishment to the centre.

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

Thanks for stopping by.
