'Chocolate Box' Cottage

Hi folks!
Hope you are enjoying your weekend. It's a wet one here.... still, managed to get lots of chores out of the way. This is one of the cards I made for the launch of Joanna Sheen's 'Country life' stamps.
I covered the front and inside of the card with K&Co papers. I used my Circle Nestabilities to cut the aperture. I then covered the 'waste' circle with more patterned paper; stamped the flowers (a freebie stamp that came with a magazine.) with brilliance white ink; Stamped and embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder; and inked the edges. I then adhered it to the inside of the card through the aperture. I stamped the cottage, painted it with watercolours and cut it out before adhering to the front of the card. I finished off with a ribbon bow.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Ciao for now!
