Close knit friends

Hello everyone

A very happy Saturday evening to you all. My spending spree at Crafter's Companion included this stamp from the Rachelle Anne Miller range - 
I began with a 8 inch card blank which I covered with a piece of blue spotty paper from LOTV's Shabby shack paper pad. I then trimmed another paper from the pad to 7 and a half inches, cut with Die'sire lace border 6 and inked whilst still in the die with tumbled glass distress ink. I then wrapped a piece of ribbon from the Ribbon Girl around the paper and attached it to the card base.
The image as I said is from Crafter's Companion and is called Close knit friends. I coloured the image with the following Promarkers - 
  • hair - sandstone, caramel and umber
  • skin - satin, blush, dusky pink and coral
  • dress - pink carnation, rose pink, fuchsia pink, pastel blue, denim and arctic blue
  • knitting - pastel blue, blue pearl and china blue
  • birds - blue pearl and china blue
  • grass - lime, pear and marsh green
  • flowers - fuchsia pink and china blue
  • butterfly - pastel blue, denim and china blue
  • bee - gold
  • sky - powder blue
I cut the image out using Die-namics stitched circle and inked whilst still in the die with tumbled glass distress ink. I cut a Die'sire Chantilly lace stamping frame from a paper from the Shabby shack pad and attached the image to it. I then attached the image to the card with foam pads.
I cut several Doohickey vintage daisies, inked the edges with tumbled glass distress ink and layered them up. I also punched several petal pairs flowers, shaped them and layered them up. I arranged the flowers onto the card base along with some ivy cut using a Marianne die. I added pearls (from the Ribbon Girl) to the centre of each flower.
To finish I added a couple of tags using LOTV's sentiment tags stamp set.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges - - week 252 - use those dies

Thank you stopping by.
