Thinking of You

Good afternoon all. Warm welcome to my new followers and many thanks to you all for your lovely comments on my previous posts.

Couple months ago I won a set of stamps at The Stampsmith Challenge; I chose the Shakespeare Julia and Friends set. I finally trimmed the stamp sheet and inked up a few images. I always dread inking photo stamps as I find it's not easy to get a perfect image.

The image I used for this card is Miranda; beautiful image, I just love her.

The card measures 4"(W) x 6"(H). I used Spellbinder Romantic Rectangles for the card front and back, and Petite Ovals and Petite Scalloped Ovals for the image and mats. 

 I top stiched the DP and distressed all paper edges with TH distressing tool and ink. I added pearls around the picture frames using Viva Pearl Pen. The DP is from Pion Design.

I hand made the rose and rolled the 2 smaller flowers. Flower petals and leave swirls are die cuts using Spellbinder and Memory Box dies. I added a metal book corner, a pearl string, some pearls and lace to complete this card. The inside is decorated with the same DPs.
Thanks for stopping by, wish you a wonderful day.
I wish to enter this card in the following challenges:

Hi again Katie,
I loved the first card with Tilda you submitted to the LLC challenge, but this one, in my opinion, is even more beautiful! Truly stunning with the lace border and all the pearls, not to mentiion the beautiful image!
