Shop Till You Drop Card (cuttlebug retro flowers)

Mornin' everyone, I am back....today anyway.....I think there is still a bug in our computer somewhere. Stubborn little things are hard to get rid of.

This card I created using an image I received in the image swap over at Craftmad back in April. It was fun to colour....I used tombows and watercolour pencils. Now for the secret.....the blue on the jeans ran when I was doing the colour on the walls of the picture and that is was the beginning of the layout creation for this card. I was going to bin it but then decided to cut the image into different shapes and just so slightly cut the part of the image that bled away. I used SU Sage Shadow for the base card then a layer of SU Pale Plum which I stitched around the edge on the sewing machine, stamped using Versa Mark with a cute little flower stamp. Punched out a large retro flower and medium size. Then ran both the flowers through the cuttlebug using the 'Swiss Dots' embossing folder. I added a rose to the centre and idea I have seen Cheryl use on her cards are few times. I really like the look. Thanks for visiting.
