Bless your nest

Come enter my blog candy!


Hello....
It's pretty late so I'll make this a quick post.
This card is for The Paper Players. Here is the sketch from LeAnne


Here is my card...


Ivory cardstock and stamps are from Papertrey Ink. Kraft cs is Recollections. Red cs ia Bazill. Pattern paper is Little Yellow Bicycle. The dies are Spellbinders. The inks I used are ColorBox chalk ink in chestnut roan and warm red. I distressed the edges with frayed burlap distress ink. I used Copic markers E51,E53,R29 and E57. A touch of Martha Stewart red glitter was used for the heart. Pearls, gem and ribbon are from Michaels.

That's all....thanks for stopping by!
