Something completely different!

Hya Friends!
Today, I finally did something with a pattern I got of the Silhouette store.
I loved it in the store, but didn't love it so much after I cut it out!
I left it lounging on my desk for ages, but finally thought,
'either bin it or do summat with it Viv'!
So I took a wooden stamp by Stampin' Up!
(No idea what it's called,  one of my friends gave it to me),
coloured it with me trusty Copics after cutting out the middle part of the pattern.

I cut two of the blue patterns and scored one at approx. 2" down from the top, glued it to the top and back of the front one and that gave me a 'hinge' for the back of the 'card'.
As it's got a lot of scrolls on it, the only other embellishment I gave it was a blingy brad on a piece of ribbon.

It's 8"x8" I didn't check the size when I first cut it, I was too excited to try it out! LOL
I put a 'dew drop' on the large rose and one on the top bud using Crystal Lacquer.
You can't actually see the one on the big rose, but I promise it's there! 
Well I've just received my latest stitched dies from Simon Says Stamp, so I'm off to play!
Thanks for visiting. You know I appreciate it.
