MMSC47 Vintage Roses

Hello everyone!  I hope you had a blessed Easter!  We took a trip to the mountains and spent the day with our kids and grand kids!  What a wonderful time!

Today I wanted to play in the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge47.  I decided to use my Layers of Color Art Stamps set Vintage Roses.  The lacing of the panels made me think of victorian days and I thought this K&Co mini stack dp, Madeline was perfect for my image.  The image is colored with Copics and the bowl and flowers are then glittered with a clear gel pen,but you can't really see that in the night time photo. I used Spellbinders Label 12 for the image and then traced outside the nestie onto the back of this yummy rich chocolate velvet that was in the base of a gift box. I had cut it and then cut a SB Label 3 from Brushed Gold to mount the image panel on.  I sponged with T Holtz Distress Ink.  The twine is from Sharon's Ribbon Store and the brown half pearls are Recollections.  I did some piercing around the outside of the card.
