Just Inklined To Hop with Die Cuts & Pearls

Good morning blog hoppers!
Time for this months Just Inklined Blog Hop woo hoo!

Our host this month is the lovely Gaynor who has chose our theme of
Die Cuts & Pearls
If you are hopping, you'll have arrived here from Karen J whoI'm sure
had something very beautiful to show you!

My card was made using the beautiful vintage image Charlotte.
If you're keen to hop on, your next stop is Tammy who I'm cetain will wow you
 with her beautiful creation! Don't forget to leave a comment at each stop because, as always
we have a couple of spot prizes to give away to someone who leaves us some love!
If you'd like to know more about my card read on!

I coloured the image with Flexmarkers, trying to keep the colours muted
 to give a real vintage feel! I used an oval nestie to cut out the image, 
then inked the edges with some distress in in Antique Linen

The flowers are from a border trim, I cut them out & added a
 pearl to the centre of each one. The flourishes were cut using Marianne Creatable dies
& the sentiment panel was a Spellbindes Die (I trimmed off the ends).

Here's a side view! If you have read on & now want to hop on, you need to
visit Tammy next! Don't forget your comments!
Happy Hopping!
