I have to apologize for this fuzzy picture of the inside of the card. I'm embarrassed that it's not in focus, however I think you can tell enough through the blurriness that I coloured the flower vase with markers. The sentiment is from a retired stamp set called Friend to Friend.
I love using the Tea Party Stamp set and trying different colour combinations with the main image. For this one I stamped the image twice - once in basic gray, and a second time in Hello Honey ink. I then fussy cut around the central part of the image and glued it to the basic gray one. I used Tom Bow glue so I had a little bit of lee way in making sure that the Hello Honey image centered perfectly.
|This versatile collection of five stamps comes in Wood or Clear Mount, and coordinates with the Oval Framelits, Large Oval Punch, Large Tag Punch. Great value for the money!|
I added three rhinestones in various sizes from medium to large in the left hand corner of the image to comply with the sketch. There are also a couple of other rhinestones on the circular designs in each of the corners.........just can't get enough bling!
Well that's it for today folks. I hope you enjoyed this card and will stop at the challenge sites to check out all the great cards that've been posted. I'm leaving you with one last look at my card.
