Flowers For You!

Today is Australia Day here, so 'Happy Australia Day' to all of my fellow Aussies! Since we're celebrating all things Australian today I've joined in the challenge from Aussie blog AnnaBelle Stamps :- Say It With - Emboss Resist, and I've also used Annabelle Stamps for my card.

I used the tiny flower stamps from Annabelle Stamps 'Helen's Party' set for my emboss resist background. I stamped them with Versamark ink on white cardstock and clear embossed them, then sponged Broken China Distress Ink all over the background.

For my main image, I used the cute 'Lil Molly' from Annabelle Stamps 'Lil Molly's Flowers' set, I also used the sentiment from the same set. I coloured Lil Molly with Copic Markers and cut her out with a Nestabilities Oval die, layered her onto another Nestabilities die. I used the Stampin' Up word window punch for the sentiment. Also used Kaisercraft rhinestones, ribbon and cord, blue cardstock from Pedigree Papers and retired Close to Cocoa from Stampin' Up.

I've also entered this card for Inky Impressions - Emboss It challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Australia Day back to you Lyn! I have the flag flying today of course (as I do many days actually). A sweet card; coloured beautifully with the Copics. I've not tried them at all.
