More use from my favourite set..

Was busy the last three days making this card, you can imagine how busy I must have been last week huh? I only got to craft late in the night... Works just drowning me these days.

So as always the trend seems to be, reaching for my 'Sweet wonderful you' set.. As some might know, this is a stamp I won from Hero Arts for one of the monthly challenges.. I love that company I tell ya:-) their stamps ROCK!!

Now last week I got a load of Maya Road Chip board, and I happen to get the Windows chip set.. Awesome for scrap booking.. but when I sat down to craft I thought it would look amazing on a card, so I painted it with some Tim Holtz Picket Fence Crackle paint and got crafting..

Here is what I cam up with!

I used a fab Hero Arts woodblock stamp for the flowers as well as their wood grain stamp. The wood panels are individually pieced for an authentic look. I used Tea Dye distress ink to get a lovely woody finish.. I added some nails to complete the panels, mighty happy with the results:-)

The little curtain is a part of the chipboard window, I covered it with some cutesy pattern paper.. And few punched butterflies were need to jazz things up:-)

The little girl was stamped inside the card along with a pretty red balloon ( slightly visible in the first pic).. I also added some grass on with my Copics to finish it off..
So that's my card for you today! Hope you enjoyed:-)
