Still one of my favorites (by Miranda)

Hello everyone, today sees the turn of our Guest Design Team member Miranda Degenaars to inspire you with her beautiful project. Miranda has used some of her favourite stamps sets to create her card, and the stunning colour combination will definitely brighten up your day.

Hello there,

I am happy to be here again and do some guest posts. CB will always have a place in my heart.
I have played with two of my favorite Cb sheets, 'Dusky Damask' and 'Pretty Poppies'. I have worked a lot with these sheets and I never get bored using them. They are simply beautiful and so versatile to use.

I have made a background using Distress inks, resist embossing using clear embossing powder and plain stamping using Distress inks.

The focal image has been colored with Distress inks and colored pencils. Also some stronger accents with a white acrylic marker. One of the must-haves!
 The edge is embossed using snowflake embossing powder.

And ooh I forgot to mention my 3rd favorite sheet ' Artistic Expressions'.......can't do without that one together with the Artistic Affirmations!

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask! 
Thanks for your visit and hope to see you again next week with my 2nd guest post,
