This is my last VLVMay2012 sketch - this time week 5 and combined with the Penny Black monochrome challenge. This card was mailed out today to a very dear friend who I hope to meet up with next week.
I stamped the image twice with Memento Rich Cocoa before cutting it out with this lovely Spellbinders die. I sponged the card whilst it was in the die with Antique Linen distress ink. I then coloured the flowers with various shades of brown Copics. Adhesive cream pearls were added to a few stamens and the image was mounted with foam pads onto the background panel.
