Afternoon fellow bloggers! Hope you are all still enjoying this weather even though I do feel we could do with a drop of grass doesn't look to happy:(....but I'm not complaining:)
Today I would like to share my second post.......My  Whimsy Inspiration card ......I have used Sapphire by StampArt  design by Kathryne! You can buy her HERE

  • I have used a 7"x7" base card and adhered purple cardstock to it.
  • The papers that I have used are Maja Design - Vintage Summer Basics which I have distressed with Seedless Preserves distress ink. On the purple card backing the image I have used a Martha Stewart punch.
  • The dies that I have used are Spellbinder - Decorative Labels Eight, Jewel Flowers and Flourishes and Go Kreate frilly 2
  • The sentiment is also a digi StampArt by Kathryne.
  • I have used frantage - shabby wine, Frantage crushed glass glitter and embossing tinsel around Sapphire. I have also added a little stickles and some tiny pearls.
  • I have coloured Sapphire in with copics and added stickles glitter in milled lavender, lavender and diamond. Whilst the glitter is still wet I have added some small lilac pearls.
  • The pearl floral trim, pearl button and roses are from The Hobby House.
  • All of the other flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
  • I have added a lush bow to finish my card off.
