Charisma Cardz "Flower Power"

Good morning everyone,
(please scroll down one post for my Twilight book giveaway).

Today's challenge at Charisma Cardz is "Flower Power". This is the excuse I needed to use my new "Everyday Button Bits" stamps from Papertrey Inc. I still haven't used any buttons with these stamps which shows how versatile they are.

Here's what I used to make this card:-

Stamps: Main image leaves and stems from Papertrey Ink "Everyday Button Bits; sentiment from Su "Oval All" set
Ink: Brilliance dewdrop and a Copic Cioa
Cardstock and DP: Die Cuts with a View and SU
Tools: Scor-pal; nestabilities, flower punches from a Create and Craft set; small circle punch, SU oval punches

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and thank you for any comment you may leave.

This morning I had some very good news, which has had me grinning from ear to ear, I hope to share it with you all soon.

Hugs, Clare xx

Fab card Clare! The grey and red colours works so well together. The embossed border is great, have a Scor-pal on my wishlist just to be able to make such lovely lines.

Would love to hear your news :)

Oh, btw, I´ve heard so much about "Twilight". I´ll check my library for one.
