Cupcake Craft Challenge #99 Acetate
Papertake Weekly Challenge - In the garden
I love Promarkers - Distressing #22
Priscillastyles MMSC62 - Sketch

For this challenge I used a stamp from "Flower Soft" and the sketch design from Priscillastyles.

The backing papers were out of my stash and came from multiple sources.  (Create and Craft, QVC and My Craft Studios).  I used adirondack ink pad - Twilight to distress the edges of the backing paper and a distressing tool to distress the silver edges of the mats.

A Nestibiities die was used to cut the main image.

The image was coloured with copic pens and flowersoft was added to the flowers.   The card was embellished with some pink flower gems and a couple of ribbons.

Then an acetate layer was added over the top.  I used a silver stickles to decorate the corners of the acetate before fixing it to the card.

Hope you like, best wishes, Sharon
