Feel Better

Hello again! Another post for me today! That's because Joanna over at Inspired by Stamping gave us a sneak peek of the upcoming July Blog Hop and the sketches we could use. I've had my card prepared for about a week now.

There are two sketches to use -


I decided to go with Sketch #2.

My step-father's mum had a fall a little while ago and had to have sugery to have her hip replaced. I wanted to create a Vintage looking card using the sketch.

Here is my card -

I have used a couple of different DP's on this card. One is from SU and the other I'm not sure about. I have stamped this rose from the Inspired by Stamping range, called Elegant Flowers, onto watercolour paper and used my SU markers and a blender pen. I have sponged around the flower with Chocolate Chip. The edges of the papers are sponged with Vintage Photo distress ink.

I have used my Sassy Salutations stamped in Chocolate Chip. 

Check out that lace! I went into Lincraft a couple of weeks ago and decided to have a look at the millions of rolls of lace that they have. This lace was so different but I really liked it. 

Thanks so much for looking xx
