My Favourite Things DT Entry

Well I cant believe February is here ALREADY! The good news is its another Meslyn Challenge, and this one is titled My Favourite Things, and in my case that has to be Penny Black Stamps and lovely papers.

The Penny Black Stamp is from a clear set called Garden Friends and the papers from Craftwork Cards, which are on sale at Meslyn Crafts, and is called the Confetti Collection - the gold foil designs are soooo luxurious! 

And I used the other two new Leonie Em Punches I invested in (yes they are expensive but beautiful) for the gold and green branches, one is called Ash Branch and the other New Ash Family. Lots of flowers and stickles..

These photos are scanned, so I will add more when I get home in daylight hours to show the front of the card. In the meantime, here is the inside of the card and I used distress inks to add the pink inked bits while the card was still in the nestabilities die
. The punched rose border is a fiskars embossing punch, and old one and I don't use it nearly enough!!
Colouring medium used is twinkling H2O's.
