Digi Doodle Shops Best Challenge #19

A new challenge has started today over on Digi Doodle Shops Best, and this week we want to see you use your favourite stamps.
The DT also had to choose their favourite stamps from Digi Doodle Shop, which as I'm sure you can imagine isn't an easy thing to choose...... lol. I went for the Bird Bath which you can buy and download HERE I do love this image and think it always makes a nice card.
I coloured the image with the usual ProMarkers.....lol, and distressed the background with distress inks and cut n' dry foam. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the embossing and again used distress ink just to soften the edges a bit. The lace is from my stash and I added a little bit of card candy to finish the card off.
