Stampin' at the Weekend

I've been trying to get ahead with my DT cards this weekend, but things kept going off in a different direction .. .. you know how it is .. .. I am sure once I've stamped an image it takes on a life of it's own when I start colouring! I coloured the image with my Copics (sorry no list as I kept mixing them up and blending shades so it's hard to tell) but when it became obvious it wasn't going to work for my DT creation, I popped it onto a small 5" square card base as I have piles of envies this size that need to be used up! Some of the newer stamps coming out are far too big for small cards, fortunately this is an older one from LOTV called Emma with presents that just about fits.

I've used a piece of freebie magazine paper, but couldn't say who it is by, inked the edges and layered a horizontal strip onto cream card where I've used a MS lace border punch to make it pretty. I also added a length of cream gross-grain ribbon across the layer and created a little button from a LOTV sentiment and a couple of Marianne diecut flower shapes. The flower embellishment is more little bits cut from Marianne dies: LRO105, LRO112, LRO142 & LRO116.

Stampin' for the weekend have a bingo card challenge and with a little bit of artistic licence I can enter with either the ribbon, pearls, pink line - or the pearls, lace (punched paper lace), polka dots (on the present) - or flowers, polka dots, die cuts - or ribbons, lace, die cuts - or flowers, lace, pink! Had I added a little sparkle and a few butterflies I'd have had all the options covered!
