Secret Crafter & CCS Challenge Card

This weeks sketch challenge on The Secret Crafter has tied in nicely with a challenge Kaz_za set on CCS forum. The challenge is to make a card using an unused stamp. Well what's hard about that....... only choosing which stamp to use lol!!
In the end I decided to use my Magnolia stamp with the back of the cat. I stamped it up using my black Stazon ink pad. I coloured it using a brown colouring pencil & added Star Dust Stickles to his wings. Then I cut round it once the Stickles had dried. In the meantime I took a 6x6 white gloss card & added a dark pink card onto this. I then cut a square of vellum just smaller than the card & then cut it on the diagonal. To make the photo corners I cut a stamp out using my cuttlebug. I then cut the square into 2 triangles & using the end of my ruler cut a triangle from the bottom of each half. (I hope this makes sense!). I attached these to the corners of my vellum which gave me an area behind the vellum to attach double sided tape to secure the vellum to the card. In each corner I also added a flower with a salmon pink brad from my stash. In the centre of the card I added 2 circles that I cut on my robo using a template from UKScrappers. The card is a pink doublesided cardstock from my shop. Onto this I foam padded my cat.To decorate the inside I again cut a triangle from the vellum & added 2 gems. Under these I used my quickie glue to attach the vellum to the card. In the righthand corner I added a Kelly Panacci flower sticker & the centre is a circle sticker from Remisce Genuine Girl. I added a gem to the centre. Unfortunately it hasn't scanned too well but I cut a square of white paper which I cut & embossed the corners on using my Fiskars punch & slipped this in loose behind the vellum.
