Hi all hope that you are enjoying this hot weather, I am not so much mainly because I tend to swell when it is hot and humid, but it does get the washing dry, so my son is happy, lol.
I bought a new stamp from Crafty Emma's it is from the Penny Johnson Vintage range and is a clear stamp.  I inked it with Momento black ink then coloured with Copics, I think next time I use it I will try my distressing inks and go for a more sepia look.
I used a cream card base but distressed the edges with TH vintage photo ink, the bp is a freebie from Michele Roos, I thought it was perfect for my card.  I mounted both the paper and image onto black card the punched the side of the image with an MS border punch.  I added gold liquid pearls here and there, the little flowers are also from Crafty Emma's store.  I added a black bow and cut a large flower petal in half to put at top and bottom.
I would like to enter this one into the following challenges:
That's it from me today hugs to all.

Lorrian- the coloring is divine and I love the vintage feel but what I love best is how the flower petals are splayed out on opposite corners. Really cool idea!
