Carnation Flower

Hi everyone!  I'm in good spirits today because it's the weekend again, YEAH!  Today is even more exciting because there are new release images available at Clear Dollar stamps.  The floral image featured on this card is the Carnation January Flower of the Month digital stamp by Clear Dollar Stamps.

My card base is Bravo Burgundy layered with White Cardstock then My Boy Stripe and Mischievous patterned paper stitched around the edges. Next I wrapped two strips of white lace and True Thyme Stitched Ribbon around the card base. The image was printed on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers. I paper pierced around the image then layered it on Bravo Burgundy. To embellish the card I added a bow made from the True Thyme Stitched Ribbon and a pearl along the bottom edge of the lace.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
