#108 - Sweet Pea - Bamboo Serenade

This post is number 108 - that means you still have time to enter my blog candy draw - check the first post on the page.
I didn't use my lovely Sweet Pea stamps in over a week - what a shame ;) So I just had to use them. This time I took Bamboo Serenade (you can find it at Jenny's Paper Jewels store) and colored her with a mix of Copics and distress inks to match the background panel. Yes, I had the background first - stamped my brand new leaf background stamp from Stampendous on glossy cardstock, embossed it with clear EP and then sponged the CS with Broken glass and Spiced Marmalade distress inks.
The tulle ribbon is from Paperworks co and I really like the softness of it - need to get bow-easy though - my bows are far from perfect. ;)

I'm entering it into following challenges:
Paper Jewels - ribbons & flowers
Stamptacular Sunday challenge - buttons and bows
Cute Card Thursday - trees/leaves
