A DISTRESSED POSTCARD!

Hello my wonderful friends, visitors, bloggers and anyone else who happens to be passing by!   Welcome! 
I am sharing a card which I made just for the sheer fun of it - my mojo has been missing recently so I thought it was time to get out the inks and just have a play.
I bought this gorgeous Noor stamp several months ago - one of those "I've GOT to have it" moments, and this is it's first outing - how naughty!!


Recipe:-

Cardstock - Stampin' Up (Wisteria Wonder layered onto Basic Black).
Stamp from Noor Designs at Joycrafts.
The Rose is coloured with Copics.
Distressed postcard, flourishes and all edges, are coloured with Distress Inks.
Diecut  - Spellbinders Fantastic Flourish Two (cut out twice).
Sentiment - Penny Black.
*********
I am entering the following challenge -
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes.
.
Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas-time, and a very happy & peaceful New Year.

This is stunning Sylvia. I love the stamp and must confess that I received it for my birthday (which was in June!) and haven't had a chance to use it yet. So, seeing your gorgeous card has given me the push I needed to find it and have a play - thank you.
Wishing you all the best for Christmas and the New Year.
hugs Sue xx

I love the colours, and I can see why it was a 'must have' stamp. I like the way the Rose can be cut out and used separately. A beautiful card. x
