Got myself some Tim Holtz's designer paper yesterday so thought I'd make a card with it . Everything I used is from his collection.
DP Lost and Found,Image flight of fancy , flower was made with tattered florals die, swirl elegant flourishs.
Thanks for looking and I love reading your comments

A Rose

I made this card for a friend who's birthday is coming up soon . The flower was made from the spellbinders blossom die. I love making them and each one is a little different. For this one I sponged with distressed inks and them spritzed with perfect pearls to give it a little shimmer. The leaves are the ribbon leaves I won from a blog hop over at notimetostamp a few months ago . Lace is from the $ store .

Hope you're having a great day and thanks for looking
