Roses are red....or in this case 'Pink'

Just thought I'd quickly show you a card sample that I have made for Particraft, using the 'Dream' stamp set - I think this is a really gorgeous and very versatile stamp set.

I have used distress inks and cosmic shimmer watercolours, incorporated some stitching and ribbon weaving. The background frame is a cuttlebug die and the main image has been stamped on a nestability shape.

A somewhat romantic feel but I have not added any specific sentiment leaving it open for various options.

Hope you're all enjoying the summer holidays!!
