New York Style

Hello - hope you've all had a good day and managed some time to create something today. I got up early and then went back to bed for about an hour. Mum came over and we went looking for some ink for her printer. She has the model that I used to have so I had some inks left over still in the packaging and had been not sure what to do with them so they won't be wasted now. We picked up a few groceries and then Mum left and I did another load of washing and hung out. Hubby was kind enough to hang the first lot out while we were out.
I managed to find a bit of time to visit some of your blogs and then after tea I folded some clothes and then sat down to see what I could come up with. I found a few images that my friend Shirley let me stamp a while back. I have since bought the stamp because I liked it so much.
So here it is:
The basecard is SU Rich Razzleberry. I added another slightly smaller piece (so I could attach the ribbon) and then a layer of SU Concord Crush. The image was stamped onto white card from stash and then coloured with Copic Markers. It is from Stamps Happen Inc. and is called New York Socialite. I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Seedless Preserves and added a sentiment from SU Teeny Tiny Sentiments inked in Basic Black and also distressed. I added some lace and a bow and some pearls as well.
The inside of the card has a piece of Concord Crush and then a topnote diecut in white with the edges distressed and the sentiment I used is from Hero Arts called Fabulous Birthday.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Sentimental Sundays - Challenge #91- Lace and Pearls
Birthday Sundaes - Challenge #45 - Get Messy Birthday Card
Make It Monday - Make It Monday #78 with Di's Digi Downloads
