This is my second sample using one of the gorgeous Bildmalarnas images.  This stamp is called "Mimosa Cafe".  My original idea was to use sepia tones and keep the background clean and simple ( ivory cardstock with some distressing to the edges).  However, as with most of my projects( I have a loose idea of what I want to create) it's only when I'm  putting together do I decide on final layout.  I would say this is probably the most time consuming part of my card making!

Copics, Prisma and Polychromo pencils
Stickles glitter - Coffee
Holographic glitter spray varnish
Distressing inks
Plain cardstock (ivory and pale pink)
Embossing folders:
Cuttlebug (Script and swirls)
Dies used:
Magnolia doily circle
All other dies from the Marianne collection
Flat back pearls, flower sequins and brad

Hope you like this project.
