Tre's CHIC

Hi all, hope you are all well and looking forward to your weekend.
Today I have a card for the Timeless Tuesday challenge #175.
Silke is host this week, and she is challenging us to make something using our favourite Flourishes stamp, our favourite die, and our favourite embellishment.
My favourite Flourishes stamp has to be the beautiful sandal from the 'Feminine Charm' set of stamps.  I have used this stamp so much on lots of things I have never shown on my blog. Personalised cards, gift tags, all things girlie...I just love it!  The Spellbinders 'Floral Oval' die I have used is one of my favourites, mainly because you can make it into a card, as I have done here.  And finally...well, if you follow my blog, you will know how much I love to make my own floral embellishments and I also love a fussy bow, too.
Here is my card...
For my card base I cut two of the largest Spellbinders 'Floral Ovals' dies and mounted them onto an oval card that I cut myself. I cut another oval shape, embossed that, then mounted it onto my card front.  I then cut the second largest Floral Oval die, and stamped my sandal.  I coloured my sandal with PM's, added a little glamour dust, then stamped the Tre's Chic, which is also from the same set of stamps. I cut a rose on my Cameo, coloured it with PM's then attched it to my bow. Finally, I added some coordinating dew drops.
The ribbon looks much darker on my photo...it actually matches perfectly with my sandal, but after numerous tries my SLR camera could not get the colour right.  Perhaps that's because I dropped it on the floor yesterday.

Spellbinders Floral Oval Dies
Flourishes 'Feminine Charm' Stamp Set - Make the Day Special

This card is beautiful as always Sasha. I have problems matching colors with my camera too. It seems to photograph inks differently than it does other things. It kind of makes me wonder if it picks up the pigments in the die differently than it does other colors.
