Just for the fun of it!!!!

Hello my dears,  You'll never guess what I've done!!!  I've only gone and made a card just for the fun of it.  I love this sweet Sylvia Zet stamp, her name is Emily and she is as cute as a button sitting on her wee swing with her puppy!!

I've used my Derwent pencils to colour my image as I wanted a colour to match the lovely Prima Papers.  I used my MS Round The Page punch (lace doily) and distressed the edges with TH brushed corduroy distress ink.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and they've all been glued and dipped in DecoArt Glamour dust. The little bird is a mould and I used white UTEE in my melt pot to make a few of them. 

I haven't added a sentiment as this will be going into my emergency box of cards to be sent to someone special at a later date.

A Creative Romance:  Bingo - Pink/Lace/Ribbon
Crafting From the Heart:  Anything Goes/Use Flowers
