Crafty Cardmakers challenge No 32

The challenge at Crafty Cardmakers is to use a freebie
So I used the freebie visage image that came with Craft Stamper Magazine.
I inked it using timber brown stazon ink.

The bottom edge was cut using my new Tim Holtz die & I used my Martha Stewart edge punches for the strips above, finished off with the strip of heart lace. The with love sentiment I matted using my circle & circle scallop punches & added silver stickles to the edge.

Using the timber brown ink again I stamped the motif  straight onto the background paper & added the blooms over the top.

The butterfly is a Martha Steward punch & I again edged it with silver stickles & popped little dots of silver stickles into the holes at the bottom for added 'bling' when the card is closed.
