Beautiful Bamboo

Well, I've still not come down off cloud 9 (and this from a girl who's afraid of heights!)

Whilst I wait for my first assignment, I haven't been wasting my time though, and this weekend I had a great time with my buddy Alison, who was finally feeling a bit better and at least able to stand up now.

This card was made using the stamp 'Flowers from Bamboo' available here which I coloured with my Spectrum Noir pens (I've put details of the colours at the bottom of this post).  The backing papers are from the Party Paws CD.  I made my rose using the small rose quilling die from die'sire and the leaves and doily are also die'sire dies (doily is Chantilly Lace).  I distressed the doily using Tim Holtz distress ink in Tea Dye.  It's all held together with Collal glue gel and all purpose glue - my favs & get used on everything!

Really hope you like this card - I loved making it.

Pens used:
for Bamboo: IG1, IG3, IG5, IG7, PP1, Blender
Branch: TN5
Flowers: PP1, PP2, PP4, DR1, BP4
Leaves: CG3, JG1
Butterflies: BT4, TB5

Well, must get ready for work.
