Ever so lovely



This card using a lovely new stamp by Little Claire called 'Ever so lovely'.

I begun by stamping the image with a black Memento ink pad. I coloured in the image with ProMarkers. I added highlights with Stickles. I cut out the image and mounted it onto panels of red and white card.



For the background I embossed a panel of red card. I embossed the bird design using my Cuttlebug All-in-one 'Thank you' embossing folder. Across the top I added a strip of ribbon. I also tied a bow with the ribbon and added this to the ribbon strip.

I attached the red and image panel to a scalloped card. I stamped a Little Claire circle sentiment with red ink. I cut it out using Lacey Circles Nestabilities. To finish the card I added gems and dots.



I am entering this card into this week's Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge Week 74 - Things with wings. The image has a small bluebird and a lovely bird house so I though it would be ideal for this challenge.
