Carte-licious 2


It's time for a Carte-licious challenge again! Sue, Joan, and Melissa are also in the challenge, so be sure to check out their wonderful creations by clicking on their names.

It was my turn to share an image, and I chose the Lockhart Gardening Angel. I thought she was so pretty, and was a new stamp to me. What better way to break her in??

The base of my card is Ruby Red. I stamped my angel on Neenah Solar White card stock with Graphite Black Brilliance ink. She is colored with my Copic Sketch markers, and sparklized with my Clear Spica pen. I used my Classic Square Nestabilities to cut and emboss both the image piece, and the mat. The background designer paper is BasicGrey Pheobe paper from my 6x6 pad. I used the SU ticket corner punch for the notching, then applied my clear Rain Dots in the corners. The white wide satin ribbon was purchased at Flourishes, but most everything else can be found in Ellen's store. The elegant sentiment is from the retired Fancy Flexible Phrases set.

Thanks for stopping by today, and don't forget to check out the other Carte-licious challege cards. I'm heading there now!
