All from one sheet !

I've made this card for a very special lady whose birthday is tomorrow. She's extremely busy setting up her own business so I know she won't have time to check here so I'm safe ! Do you ever find a technique and just can't get enough of it? Well, layering stamping and using masks is really holding my attention at the moment......so you may well see quite alot of it ....lol...

For this card I made a master sheet using Wendy Vecchi stamps and Oxford Impressions stamps with Distress Inks and a couple of masks. The main image is an Indigo Blu stamp, stamped onto a piece of the master sheet. The sentiment is cut out using a Nestability.

The ribbon is seam binding which I've dyed using Distress Re-inker which I've spritzed with water. The flower is made from Crinoline and I've rubbed DI over it. The butterfly is cut using the TH Mini Butterfly die and the swirl is cut using the TH Mini Flourish die. I've cut one of them from some packaging and then coloured it with Alcohol inks. The Crinoline, seam binding and the gorgeous filigree metal corner are all from the lovely Linda's Zibbet Boutique.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
