who are offering a £10 voucher

Here is my design team inspirational piece, but don't forget to hop on over and see what the rest of the amazing team have created to inspire you.
I just wanted to colour in copics this amazing Julie Nutting stamp, so I made a birthday card for a very good friend. I also borrowed the stamp from my other crafting friend Polly, thanks hun.
I used my fancy grand nestie ovals to create this oval easel and made sure the image or bottom of the skirt was used to be the easel hold.  I edged all the ovals with TH Tattered Rose DI and then added a string of pearls, some tiny pink pearls and some tiny tiny rhinestones along with a lovely sentiment and some roses and greenery.  Everything on this card except the image and sentiment and dies can be purchased from the  Hobby House
