Alter something!

The recipe from Cooking it Up with Katie this fortnight, is
Make or alter an embellishment
Add some Sparkle
Use a die cut.
For this card I coloured some white ribbon with Copics, to match the deep grey pearlised paper, I overstamped the die-cut flowers (Marianne Creatables) with a text stamp and then ran the petals through the Cuttlebug using an embossing folder to add a little texture. Not content with that, I then sprayed the petals with a little Spray & Sparkle.
The layout is in the 'Clean & Simple' style, but I think it conveys the meaning quite well.
I'm not quite sure what make the sentiment stamp is, but I love it!
Katie is looking to extend the DT over at the challenge blog and move the challenges up to a weekly basis, so do pop over and check things out. Why not come and join us!

    This is simply stunning, so elegant and I agree that sentiment stamp is gorgeous!
