I love using these stamps by Sarah Kay, they are such innocent looking images of a bygone era.
The papers I used were from my stash, I must have had for years....

The lace I surrounded the image with was from my local market, I love using lace and ribbons on my cards especially when the images are so cute. I use distressing inks and pro-markers to colour in my stamped image.
The large flower I made using two sizes of Spellbinders scalloped nestabilities using an old book for the paper, I used distressing ink to colour the paper and screwed it up as much as possible to give a really soft ruffled effect before I joined all the layers together with the button in the middle. The other flowers that surround this one are from the Prima range.
The corner was made using a Sizzix die and coating with clear Glossy Accents.

I hope you like my creation, thank you for looking.

  1. What a delicious card Emma ! I love the lace you have put around the sweet image (she is really the cutest !!!) and your blue flower is absolutely magnificent ! Smiles from Catherine

  2. Wow Mam what a gorgeous bold card. I loooove the flower, it's so dark and mysterious and really is the focal point of the card I think. The flower arrangements you both put on your cards are enough to make the best florists jealous!!!
