For the card front, I used a plain white cardstock, cut 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 and run through a xyron. I had pre-stamped white cardstock, using black versafine ink, using various background stamps so I would have different patterns. I cut these stamped pieces into strips, varying from 1/4 to 5/8 inches in width. I also cut a few pieces of the black cardstock so I could add them into the mix. I then placed the different pattern strips side by side, all the way across until completely covered. I die cut the assembly using a Spellbinder label die. I used a small long oval die to cut out the center aperture. I stamped a small vase of flowers on white cardstock and colored it with Copics. I cut it out slightly bigger than my oval cut out and used pop dots to pop it up. I mounted the quilted piece to the black background. I tied a black satin ribbon, about 1/2", vertically around my black background assembly. I added a black satin bow to the tied on piece of ribbon.

I started with Bazzill's kraft paper for the card base, A2 size. I cut a dark brown Bazzill for the mat, then another piece of kraft for the background. I used the Impression Obsession Background stamp - Distressed Corduroy (cco47) with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink. I then stamped over the corduroy with the Impression Obsession background stamp - Spatter (cco59) with the Ranger Distress ink Peeled Paint.
The main image is a stamp by Penny Black called Queen Anne's Lace (3939k). used the brown Versafine again stamped on the flip side of a pattern paper called Pink Grapefruit by Kaiser Craft. It was from a line called Pink Gelato. I used one of the circle dies from the Classic circle Nestibilities, and cut a brown circular mat I made using the Lacy Circles Nestibilities. I made some small glue placements on the image and sprinkled on some Sweet Pea Flower Soft. The ribbon was from May Arts, a 3/8" satin with pink on one side and brown on the reverse.
