CCC November Card at SOS

For the Card Chain Challenge I was lucky enough to land behind my card making on-line friend Maria whom I met through the Hero Arts Flickr group.  She had my name last month, so I was thrilled to be able to send her a card this month. 

I opened up my newest Penny Black stamp set.  I wanted to make a shaped card, so I broke out my spellbinders, cut three panels in white and 1 interior panel from patterned paper.

I inked the larger panel, leaving the die in place to provide a white edge and attached it to a plain white die cut panel which had been scored near the top for the card fold. 

The flower I chose was stamped 3 times with the die in place and colored with Copic markers.  I inked around my colored images again with the die in place.  Next I stamped the sentiment.  Lastly I added stickles in same shades as the colored images.  I let this all dry for 1 full day.  Then I assembled the card.

Thanks for stopping by.

As the lucky recipient of this card, I have to say it's even prettier in person!! The colors are beautiful and the shimmer from the glitter is fabulous.

I love the card, Cat!! So glad we met through the Hero Arts Flickr group and I hope you'll keep playing along in the CCC.
