Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

Such an easy peasy card to do - the beautiful background paper from the Couture Creations 6 x 6 Vintage Rose Paper Pad does most of the work. Just gorgeous!

I cut the Couture Creations Touch of Love Die out of Coconut White Card. I rubbed the Tattered Rose Distress Ink Pad over the surface. I spritzed with water to move the ink around a wee bit then heat set. I popped a little Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Star Twinkles onto my Craft Sheet, picked some up onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam and dabbed it over the die cut. I cut a Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics B die out of Coconut White Card and added some Sparkle Star Twinkles around the edges.

I stamped the sentiment which comes from the Creative Expressions Wedding Cake Singles Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A and added some Sparkle Star Twinkles around the edges.

I cut the Couture Creations Vintage Border out of Black Card and added it alongside the panels.

I assembled the card as shown adding a few dots of Cosmic Shimmer Cosmic Pearl PVA.

I have noticed that we've just tipped over the 1300 followers mark. I'll try and do the draw for the candy some time later today.

Thanks for stopping by.
