I have made a card today using an image that was sent to me by my scrummily delicious mega talented friend Tab. Thank you so much sweetie I loved inking her up!

I have coloured her onto watercolour paper 300gsm with distress ink pads. The background is distressed with weathered wood. I have edged with walnut stain and perfect pearls. The snowflakes are cuttlebug and martha stewart which I have distressed with walnut stain and added stardust stickles. I would like to enter this card to the Stamp with Fun challenge.

Hello Kim!
Oh my, you've done it again! You are so talented, your cards, and I mean ALL of them, are totally gorgeous! It's almost impossible to stop look at them, and your eye for design is amazing.
The image is supercute, and your colouring is outstaing as usal. The bow with button was a lovely detail. :o)
I haven't got the time to be at the computer last days, I've got a lot of homeworks, but now it's Friday and I can (finally!) visit your blog again!
Your three last cards are all stunning, I love them all a lot, but especially the card in your last post. It totally blows me away. Those details you made with your stamps are wonderful.
Have a great weekend!
Hugs from Hanna
