FS152 - Casing ardodd!

Today's card was made for this week's Featured Stamper Challenge.  The honour this week goes to ardodd and I was inspired by her Candy Dot Cupcakes card.  I changed the image, colours and added a few more layers!!  :)

The cross image I used is from the brand new January Release from Our Daily Bread Designs called Confirmation.  I started my card was a base of Bravo Burgandy and layered with some pink bazzill, white and two pieces of this totally luscious SEI paper also from Our Daily Bread Designs called First Kiss and Secret Rendevous.  Over the paper join I added more Bravo Burgandy that has been punched with the Fiskars Lace Border punch and then added some pink 1" satin ribbon.  The main panel is made of white card, cut with Label 8 Nestabilities and then sponged with Pretty in Pink ink and popped up.  On top of that is an oval of Bordering Blue that I got from my Bestie Edna.  The beautiful cross is from the Confirmation stamp set that I've stamped in Jet Black Stazon, coloured with markers and a blender pen and then very carefully cut out.  I finished by adding some white pearls to the top corners and each of the scallops of the border punch.

Stamp - Confirmation (ODBD)
Paper - Bravo Burgandy, Pink Bazzill, White, SEI Secret Rendevous and First Kiss
Ink - Jet Black Stazon
Accessories - Label 8 and Large Oval Nestabilities, Fiskars Lace Border Punch, White Pearls, 1" Pink Satin Ribbon, Scissors, Foam Tape.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!!  :)

HI Kathy - this is just gorgeous - and elegant (of course!) I love the colours you have used, they are rich and regal - perfect for this image, which I have to add is probably my favourite one of the ODBD new releases!! It is great to see you back at ODBD - you are so suited to their images! God bless you Kathy! {{{hugs}}}
