Cool Cats !

This is my card for the following challenges :

The main image is a Whipper Snapper stamp that I bought ages ago for a card order, and I have to be honest I've not used it since ! I stamped it with black Memento ink and then shaded with Pro Markers. I cut it out with a circle Nestability and sponged Distress inks in Antique Linen, Scattered Straw and Vintage Photo around the edge before removing the die. The sentiment is from a Papermania set of stamps and I've cut it out with Labels 6 Nestabilities and again sponged Distress inks around the edge before removing the die. The papers are Basic Grey and I've stamped onto the background with a Crafty Individuals stamp in Vintage Photo. The paper lace has been made with a Fiskars edge punch.

The pearls are coloured with a Pro Marker and the buttons are from my stash.

Well that's Monday over with, and my cold is starting to disappear. We're off out for a curry tonight so that should sort out my sinuses !

Thanks for looking
