Regency & Romance

For this design I followed the Sketch on the Noor! Design Challenge Blog.  Huge fan of Noor! dies and I am slowly building up my collection and I was thrilled to find the challenge blog.

Here is the sketch to follow to enter this month' challenge.
I have yet to purchase any of the Dutch Doobadoo templates (but I have quite a few on my list!). What I do have in my stash is the Xcut four petal nesting die, this is a similar shape but quite smalle hence my little 5x5" card..

I have distressed the edges of the three bases with my Hougie distressing tool and Tim Holtz Spun Sugar & Picked Raspberry Distress Inks.  I have used Anna Marie Design Kraft card for the base, handmade pink paper & spotty paper from my stash.  The layers are adhered to each other with Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue, you can't stick handmade paper with double sided tape - I speak from experience!

The next three layers are Studio Light papers, again edged with Spun Sugar Distress Ink.  The circle layer was cut using EK Tools circle scissors from Studio Light paper.

I edged a 5x5" scalloped card with Picked Raspberry and folded the top in half to make an easel I have covered it with pink paper from my stash which I have embossed with Crafter's Companion Vintage Decor Vintage Floral Collection.

I used more Studio Light papers for the insert on the base and adhered pink lace which I have threaded with two pieces of white ribbon from my stash. The sentiment is printed from the Polkadoodles Rose Budd CD-Rom and is coloured with Spun Sugar distress ink.

I have embellished the base with pink pearls, gems, buttons and pearlised hearts.  The topper is embellished with a brad, pearlised hearts, material flowers & brads, flower brad and a string of pearlised flowers.

The image is from Polkadoodles Rose Budd CD-rom and I have coloured it with the following Graph It markers; Skin: 4120, 4125, 4150, 4155, 4170, 4135 Hair: 1210, 1230, 1280 Dress: 5110, 5115, 5120 Roses: 6130, 5130, Leaves: 8250, 8260
