Todays card has been created with one of the Pink Gem Designs called Mimi in Hat and Coat, you can see several different designs on the website, Janet has some really lovely ones.

I firstly stamped the image onto white card and coloured it with my Derwent Intense Watercolour pencils and then used a watercolour brush to blend the colours, but on top of this I used my Artquest paints to give it a sheen, I then left it to dry, after which I punched it out with one of my Oval Nestabilitie Dies.

The base card is a piece of A4 card folded landscape onto which I have stuck a piece of some of Nancy Watts papers from one of my magazines. I then embossed some Red card with my Cuttlebug and stuck this across the centre, I then used another of the Nancy Watts papers and a Fiskars border punch and placed this on top of the red card. Through the centre I have stuck a ribbon.

The main stamped image has been mounted on a large Oval Scalloped Holographic mount cut with another of my Nestabilitie Dies and placed in the centre of the ribbon.

To finish of the card I have made up some flowers and stuck a staple in the centre and mounted them to the left of the image, above this I have stuck a ribbon bow. I finished of the card with a tag which came with the Nancy Watts papers and stuck this to a piece of red card and cut around the edge with my scallop scissors and punched a hole at the top and put a piece of the ribbon left from the bow through and stapled them together. I then stuck tiny jewels along the edge of the punched out centre piece of paper and on the tag.
