 Hi all today I would like to share a card with you and to enter some challenges.  My card is an 8 x 8 the image is a large rubber stamp that I have had for many years I bought it from Joanna Sheen it was from the Serendipity range that is no longer stocked.  I stamped the image 3 times with Versafine Black Onyx Ink then used clear embossing powder, two of the images I painstakingly cut out coloured and then used silicone glue to create the 3d effect, I used Graph it Markers to colour, the papers are LOTV, I mounted papers and image onto black card, I added two chocolate brown doilies, gold glitter bow topped with a dazzler, I added quite a few AB crystals, die cut butterflies, flowers and sentiment.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I have taken several pictures so you can see how the looks decoupaged.

I will be saving this card for my mum's birthday in November when she will be 96 years young.
I may be missing for a very little while as I am going to set up my new laptop I hope that the gremlins will finally leave me alone and let me enjoy my blogging.
See you soon until then have a great weekend.
