Distressed my beige paper than stamped with the writing stamp on top stamped the rooster with soft suede ink pad from Stampin Up then put onto copper shimmer card and chocolate brown, cut choc brown with EK punch , quite pleased with the end result, didnt know whether to colour in old rooster or not ! What do you think ??

Silver Wedding

Got to make a few Silver Wedding cards all for the same person so thats a fine challenge for me. I used the vintage vogue stamp for the background then mounted it onto silver mirri card, then used a cultlebug embossing folder for the wedding bells and glitz it with gems and Glamour dust . Looks better in reality the flash on the camera was clashing with the mirri. Watch this space for more....
