Crafts and Me 'Crimson Rose'

Well ok, pink rose in this case lol. I've used one of my new stamps from Crafts and Me for this card - 'Crimson Rose' is one of a new range of stamps. They are all gorgeous, I'll definitely be back for more on payday lol. I've made this card for this weeks challenge from Crafts and Me which is a colour combo - Pink, black and white

I've used the sketch from this weeks challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity (the recipe this week also  includes using a file tab and making a thankyou card/gift). The bp is made with inkadinks and cosmic shimmer powders (can't get the shimmer to show in the pic). I stamped around the edge with a swirl from HOTP and distressed with my craft knife and black versafine. The main image is coloured with promarkers, the moon is also embossed with sparkle EP and the wings and flower glittered with Snowflake glitter from Artylicious. The images is layered on some distressed black card. I made the borders by stamping a Joanna sheen lace stamp on vellum and embossing with raspberry sorbet EP. I added a little more glitter to the edges. to cover the edge I added some narrow black velvet ribbon. The file tab is made with a scrap of card stamped with 'gratitude' from HOTP. I added some little black gems and a flower made from cotton lace, pink velvet ribbon and a glittered plastic top (I got a huge bag of these from our local scrap store - I knew they'd come in handy lol)

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
Incy Wincy: Distress it
Papertake weekly: In the garden
Paper Sundaes: Lots of layers

Thanks for looking
