Just for you.....

Hello,

Here we are at the weekend I hope you have lots of lovely things planned. 


Today I would like to share a card with you I have made using this sweet Hanglar image. I have coloured her with distress ink pads. I have edged this and everything on my card with walnut stain. The stickles I have used are star dust. 

The heart border is a Martha Stewart punch. The tiny flowers are an EK Success punch. I have distressed a few of the paper edges and added some liquid pearl dots.


Here is a side view with a peek at the inside.


I thank you so very much for your visit and for your comments to me I am sending you big hugs I appreciate each and every one.

Take care and have a wonderful weekend!

This card will be on Ebay here later tonight.

love

inks used
skin - tattered rose, antique linen
