Fabulous Friday!......

Hello,

Here we are Friday already!

I was so very lucky to win some blog candy on the Belles 'n Whistles blog. I was so thrilled when Summer sent me these beautiful stamps that I just had to ink this sweet image up. Thank you so much Summer for giving me the opportunity to win these amazing stamps I love them!


I have stamped my image onto 300 gms watercolour paper with versafine black onyx. I have coloured her with distress ink pads. The background is distressed with tattered rose. I have distressed my papers with vintage photo. The flowers were sent to me by the stunningly talented Tab. (mwah) I have punched the small flowers. The sentiment frame is quickutz. The leaves martha stewart. To finish I have added my stardust stickles which is after all the law!


Also,  I have seen that it is Summer's birthday so I would like to wish her a very Happy Birthday!

Thank you so much for looking and I wish you all a most wonderful weekend!

love
