Aurora Wings

Hi there, hope you're having a good weekend. We've had about a years worth of weather in a few hours here, freezing fog and ice this morning, then blue sky and sunshine and now we've got howling wind, thunder, torrential rain and a bit of hail every now and then. All we need now is some snow lol. Today's card features one of the gorgeous digistamps from Aurora Wings, I just love these images! 

The image is called 'Profile of a woman with roses' and I've coloured her up with Graph'It Markers, the edges have been distressed with old paper distress ink and she's matted on some peach cardstock. The backing paper is an old favourite from K&Co and i've added some of my favourite Melissa Frances Lace (sooooooo hard to cut but I thought this lovely lady deserved it lol) The seambinding has been dyed with distress inks and i've topped the bow off with a tiny button and some twine. to finish off I've added some faux pearls, a rose made with Thermomorph and coloured with mica powder and a couple of metal leaves.

I'm entering this in the following challenges
Creative Moments: buttons/pearls
Delicious doodles must use ribbon
Fairy Tale: Bows
Fussy and Fancy: vintage
Paper Crafting Journey: vintage, distressed, shabby chic

I'm planning on spending the rest of the afternoon in my craftroom, ahhh bliss!!
Thanks for popping by today, hope to see you again soon
