I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment so that I know what you think of my projects and that you've been to visit!

Anyone can comment, even those who don't have a blog. (Just look for the word 'Comments' under the three little pictures at the end of each post). Readers without a blog can add an anonymous comment, but please leave your name (and docrafts username if applicable) so I know who you are!

Pink and Purple Lacy Chandelier Thank You

Here is the little Thank You note card that I sent to Alex the other week after I received some goodies from here in her big sell out.

I am entering this card into the Stampin' For The Weekend blog challenge, which currently has a theme of Ribbons & Bows. Hopefully my ribbon knots will qualify!!

I decided to use one of the stamps from my new Papermania Chatsworth Furnishings stamp set. It's a lovely chandelier stamp, and I stamped it using the Versafine Imperial Purple archival pigment ink onto the pink distressed bubble paper from the K&Co The Best Of K&Co Too paper pad. The sentiment, from the Woodware Jane's Script sentiment stamp set, was stamped at the bottom of the panel also using the Imperial Purple ink.
The top corners of the image panel were punched using the Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace corner punch. The edges were then distressed using ColorBox Wisteria Fluid Chalk ink.
This was then matted onto panels of hot pink and purple Core'dinations card. Using the Cropodile Big Bite, holes were punched down the right hand side of the image panel and lengths of Anita's pink organza ribbon were tied through them.
Clear faux gems were then added to the corners of the panel.
To finish off the card, the right-hand edge of the card blank was punched using the Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace border punch and inked with the Wisteria ink. A panel of the hot pink Core'dinations card was then added underneath the punched area allowing the colour to show through.
