Dies and Punches at Stamping Sensations

Good Morning! It is the first Sunday of the month and time for a new challenge at Stamping Sensations. This month we want you to get out your dies and / or punches and have some fun! Don't forget to include some stamping too.
For my card I used an asymetrical border die from Marianne designs, 'Wonderful Locket' spellbinder Die-D-Lites die, the Britannia rose leaf die and an E K Success flower punch. I stamped the base card with my worn paint background stamp from Inkylicious, in faded lilac distress ink. the sentiment is also from Inkylicious. The flourish stamp is from Waltzing Mouse. The background paper has been in my stash for so long I have no idea where it came from! I added some stardust stickles along the edge where the die leaves an embossed pattern.
 I also added gold liquid pearl centres to the flowers. Here is a close up.
Most of the card used for this project was bought at PDA Card and Craft who are our wonderful sponsors this month. The winner will get

How cool is that?!

  1. Love everything about this, Sally, especially the colours, and the flowers. It's such a pretty design, and the little touch of glitter is just perfect. x

  2. Lilac and green go so well together Sal and this one looks lovely, like the flow of the leaves with the side panel as well.

    Hope you have a good Sunday.

  8. This is so pretty, I love the colours & that Inkylicious background stamp. I think that might just have to be another one you & I have in common!

  9. With the card folded flat hadn't appreciated how pretty the front looks with the shaped cut away edge. The liquid pearls are a good idea for the flower centres. I don't always have gems in the right colours. Hugs Mrs A.
