Instructions:

1. To create this card, I used several Tattered Angels projects. I thought I'd show you some tips and tricks when using them. First, I used the Timeless Romance stamps to create the frame background. The frame stamp is large, but you don't need a large acrylic block. They come backed with a sturdy piece of plastic that you can use instead! I stamped mine onto the green paper and then cut it out.2. Next, I used one of the Timeless Romance calling cards. To achieve the look on the flowers, I just used a small paint brush and dipped it right into the Glimmer Mist. Then, I painted the flowers. Don't worry if you don't stay in the lines. ;)3. I spritzed the Calling Card with Dazzling Diamonds, a top coat, that gave it a gorgeous sheen. You can't see itin the photo, though.

4. Then, I cut out a piece of pink paper and adhered it to the green frame. I wrapped the trim around the left side of the card and added the calling card.

5. I stamped the banner and sentiment and added that, along with the flower and attached the whole thing to a cardstock card base.-
