♥ Twinkle Toes ♥

I love this stamp set from Clearly Besotted  I think it has to be my favourite :)  I stamped Twinkle toes ink autumn rose Papertrey ink and then I decided to highlight around the image using a copic marker.
A little bit of "twinkle bling" and ruffled satin ribbon and a wee strip of dotty paper up the side.
It's all on 3d foam pads, but ..... I couldn't get a good photo (",)  I must have a try at making a photo tent.

♥ Birthday ♥

Today's card ... keeping with my CAS {love} ;) .... I used a stamp from my new Hero Arts set .. looove these.  Added a little ribbon border (Tilda ribbon) and "of course" pearl stones. I wish I had some of the spray paint mist, we were shown in class how to do this technique .. and it looks fab and I think it would have looked well on my card instead of the pearls (",)  I shall try this when I get some ♥
I also used my new impression plate from Papertrey and the ink also from Papertrey.
Please don't forget to check out our latest challenge at Let's Craft and Create ~ Birthday.
