Hi Bloggers.

Day 1 of Ally Pally today. Pop by the Creative Expressions Stand and say 'Hi' if you're going. Hochanda are broadcasting shows from there live over the weekend. Sue Wilson is starting it off with a show at 11am.

Here's today's card -

I started by stamping the Justrite Garden View Background onto Milk Card uisng Crushed Olive Distress Ink. I trimmed the card down to sized and distressed the edges with my scissors. I then inked around the edges with Crushed Olive Distress Ink using a Smoothie. I matted it onto a piece of Black Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Stacking Sentiments Stamp Set onto Milk Card using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 10 Dies and inked through the die with Crushed Olive. I cut out the next sized die in the set and again inked through the die with Crushed Olive.

I tied a bow using 3 lengths of Black Jute Twine and added an Ivory Craft Consortium Resin Flower.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 5mm Black Pearls and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

Thanks for stopping by.
