Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I spritzed a piece of Watercolour Card with water. I then sprinkled Peacock Green and Golden Mint Pixie Powders over and put aside to dry.

Once dry, I stamped the text stamp from the Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 Live & Make Art Stamp Set using Sepia Archival. I edged my background piece with Jet Black Archival.

I dusted the background with an Anti Static Bag and stamped the floral border stamp from the Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 It's More Flower Art Stamp Set using Clear Perfect Medium. I added CS Black Mirage Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder and heat set using a Low Speed Heat Tool.

I stamped the sentiment from the Live & Make Art Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Sepia Archival. I trimmed it to use just 'Dream' and edged with Jet Black Archival. I cut a little die from the Spellbinders Venetian Accents Die Set out of Black Card and added my sentiment to it. I threaded some thin Black Satin Ribbon through the die cut and wrapped it around the back of my background. I matted the background onto Black Card.

I assembled the card as shown piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.
