Floral Shaped Card

The challenge on Penny Black Saturday Challenge today is to make a 'shaped' card.  I thought it was a great opportunity to use some neglected dies.
 I used Penny Black's Collage of Wishes 40-385 stamp on watercolor paper and Tim Holtz distress inks to watercolor the image.  

For the card, I used some ivory textured card stock, and the Spellbinders Decorative Elements die # S5-101.  I folded a piece of the card stock, and placed the die about a fourth of an inch over the fold so that the left edge would not cut out of the card, leaving the left seam intact.  I then cut the same die from gold card stock, cutting it fully this time, and layered this directly over the folded card, hiding the fold.  I then cut another one of the layers of the die from the ivory card stock and attached it.  

I cut my stamped panel out and attached it with foam tape to the card front, giving it dimension and interest.

Some sparkling crystals from Studio Katia finish off my card.

I sponged the inside lightly, and stamped Penny Black's stamp Playful (51-205) lightly in pink.

I am adding my card to these challenges:
