Framed Flowers

So I'm struggling to find motivation and inspiration to craft...not really sure what that's about but today I did have a little play at my desk and created a simple card for the Indigo Blu challenge. 
 I started with the beautiful Rose Blush stamp which I coloured with Inktense pencils and blended with my water brush.  
 I then dies cut an oval mat and removed the centre with my craft knife to create a frame placing it over a section of the stamped image. I used the edge of the stamp to add some detail in two corners, stickles on the frame for a bit of bling and a stamped sentiment (The words are actually underneath each other on the stamp but I carefully cut them apart as I usually prefer this longer side by side style message.)

I'm also sharing this over at - 

Thanks for stopping by...Esther xx
