Photobucket

This card was a long time in the making. I really wanted to make a card for my forum friend who sadly lost her brother. I stamped several images but none of them seemed right.
Then one day I was rumaging in a box looking for a different stamp and found this one, and I instantly knew what I wanted to do.

This is my card:

I followed the lovely sketch from Cupcake Craft Challenge

I heat embossed the Stampendous Dandie Trio image with gold embossing powder. I added a couple of flowery bits from stash and a couple of swarovski crystals. I also used peel-offs for the sentiment which I very rarely use - even though I have a book full of them! I inked the edges of everything with vintage photo distress inks - including the ribbon! The papers are from DCWV Once upon a time stack.

Here's the inside:

I wanted to write a few words so I used paper from a note book and punched along the top with my SU spiral punch, again inking all the edges with vintage photo distress ink. And finished it off in a tissue lined box.

Thanks for looking!
