City Crafter Challenge #92

I was thinking about a card for last weeks challenge over City Crafter Challenge ~ using a silhouette ~ but I didn't get time.  So this weeks challenge allowed me to do so ......the challenge is "Pretty Inside and Out"  I got to use my silhouette stamp and make a pretty card...

Sending wishes (CCCB#92)


and inside

Inside of the card decorated (CCCB#92)


I bought a DCWV mat stack called "The Chateau Lavender" yesterday, with some awesome papers.   I chose one with glittery purple flowers and a soft cream background.  I stamped the Hero Arts Dancing with Flowers in Versafine Onyx Black and clear embossed it.   I coloured the flowers with markers.  I then stamped the HA Sentiment.  This lovely set was a RAK from the sweet Vanessa.   I got an email a few weeks back from her asking me to choice a stamp set.... and she kindly sent it to me.... What a sweetie.    Once I added the panel to a pale lavender card base, I added the tiny butterflies and gems  then onto the inside.... just added a strip of the PP and three little butterflies with a bit of distressing round the edge.

This is a Valentine's card that is going to be heading off to a special person... my HA exchange recipient.  Hope she likes it.

Hope you week is going well... I'm finally almost better ~ only the odd cough now and then.  Had the dentist today, one filling. Still feeling a bit tender.
