Launch Day of Crisalis Classics - POTW on Create & Craft!

Oh Wow what a launch of Crisalis Classics & Paintbox Poppets twin CD! Those stamps too are fabulous, so many stamps on one plate - a must have!
 The artwork from Christine is just absolutely stunning, her pictures have me in such awe of her work!
Well here is my card today coloured in with my Spectrum Noirs!
I have used backing papers from the 1st Paintbox Poppets CD and then one of the Card Companion sheets from the Crisalis Classics CD. I have edged all the papers using my distress ink, bit addicted to that at the minute and layered everything up onto some Bazzill Pearl card. 
I used a couple of doilys from my stash and used a Memory Box die called Honeysuckle Vine and cut it out with Kraft Card.
The die I used to stamp my image onto is from Sizzix called Tickets and I used the largest die and then drew around the outer edge and cut it out of my pink card to layer my image onto. Finished off with some pearls and flowers!
Spectrum Noir Colours Used:
Skin - FS2, FS3, FS6 & TN2
Dress & Scarf - PP3, PP4 & PP5
Hair - TN3, TN4, TN7 & TN8
Fence - EB2 & EB3
Dog - TN2, TN3, TN5, TN7, TN8 & EB5

A Close up!

My next card is an easel card made up from the Decoupage Section on the Paintbox Poppets CD and using the backing papers from the original CD. I used my Die'sire Grace Frame and distressed the edges using Victorian Velvet Distress Ink Pad. 
Next I printed off one of the gorgeous ribbon borders as my stopper and decoupaged a couple more of the roses onto it. Lastly I added some flowers!  
Having to pinch myself as this is my 1st POTW launch and have sat so many times watching and wishing that I could be on the CC DT Team and still can't believe that I am!
Thank you so much for stopping by, please feel free to leave a comment as I love to read them!
