First DT card - Mini Bath time Fhiona

I am very excited to be sharing my first DT card with you today using the cutest 'Your Next Stamp' mini stamp of Fhiona relaxing in the bath.

This adorable mini stamp is available from Make the Day Special and is perfect to decorate mini cards with. As soon as I saw the stamp, I instantly thought of my new Basic Grey Wisteria pad as the colours are so serene and the patterns are so feminine, they make a lovely little card.

To make the card, I cut a mini card shape using the Nestabilities large scallop squares and covered it with the backing paper around which I had wrapped some lovely crisp ivory grosgrain ribbon. I added a simple bow to the left and embellished it with some pearls.

I stamped my image onto Coordinations white card as I love working on textured card. I coloured the image with Promarkers and added some glossy accents to the bathtub. I cut the image out with my Nesties, layered on to blue card and used the same technique for my sentiment.
The finishing touch was some little cream flowers with pearls added to the centres.
I hope you have a lovely Friday.
