Recessed card version 2 !

I was so pleased with the recessed card I did yesterday, I've done another one ! The main image is Yumy's Garden Rubber Stamp Tapestry, which I've stamped using Versamagic inks. I've cut it out using a square Nestability and it's mounted onto Bazill card. The spotty paper was a bargain buy from a local craft shop and was perfect to go with the Bazill card. The lacey strip is made with a Fiskars edge punch; cut a 3cm wide strip and then punch it down both edges, eh voila ! The flowers are just punched and the tiny white flower in the centre is one of the flowers left over from using the edge punch. The leaves are made with a Martha Stewart punch and I've run an embossing tool down the middle of the leaves to make them stand out. The sentiment is from a set of Papermania set of stamps which I've stamped with Versagmagic ink and cut out with a square Nestability. I've run the same ink around the edge to give it some definition.
This photo just shows the details off a little better.
Well I've had a lovely afternoon in my craft room, sorting and surfing and generally just doing any thing I felt like ! What a pity I can't do this every day. The tiling in the kitchen is almost done, hopefully by tomorrow night it will be finished ...hurrah !
Thanks for looking.
