Ruth's beautiful stamps

At our recent get together I had a stamp of Ruth Hamilton's Pick of the bunch stamps by Tonic Studios, and had to get some of my own! Here is my first card with them.

These stamps are from the Chrysanthemum set, with the main image coloured with promarkers and the base card stamped in Dried marigold distress ink. The emboss and cut folder is from Marianne designs, and I added a bit of diamond stickles and a few gems.
Now I know it has reached it's destination I can share it with you.
Thanks for looking!

I love the subtle glittering of this with your colour scheme - soft yet striking & just so different. the background is terrific with the embossed panel.

Just catching up with you after my hols, Sally and it looks like you had a great day on your get together. I'm just sorry I missed it. Hopefully, there'll be a next time.
Your Chrysanthums are beautiful. I love how you've created the base card and that die embossed panel is stunning.
Hope you and yours are all well. Soon be back to school!!!! What a thought.
