Crafting Musketeers go Stamping

Hi Folks
I am now back from my holiday and had a fabulous time.  The weather was lovely and now I just have to work on keeping my tan as long as possible lol.  Bit difficult with the lack of sunshine here since I have been home.

I am here today to provide a little inspiration for the current monthly challenge over at Crafting Musketeers.  Our theme for this month is:
Use a stamped image
(this can include digital images too)

Here is my inspiration project using a digital image from our sponsor Polka Doodles.

I coloured the image with my promarkers before cutting out with an oval die.  I distressed with ink through the die and added some liquid pearls around the image.  The papers came from a free paper pad that came with a crafting magazine a few months ago.  All the matting and layering was done onto pink card.  Lots of pink flowers, gems and ribbon completed the card.

For full details of the challenge just pop over to Crafting Musketeers.  Looking forward to seeing lots of entries.
