Sweet Pea's "Captured"

I fell in love with this gorgeous Sweet Pea image by 
Karen Middleton titled 
Isn't she just beautiful??

You can find a lot of other Middleton images by clicking

Supplies used:
Sweet Pea stamp "Captured"
papers by Anchor Paper
embossing folder "Butterfly Migration" by Sizzix
Nestie "Petite Ovals"
vine die by Cheery Lynn "Fanciful Flourish"
sanding block
Copic markers
Distress Ink "Iced Spruce"
corner rounder

I ran a sander over the embossing to bring out the white core and
layered vine die cuts around the image itself and sponged some Distress inks
around the edges.
A nice 'n simple card yes?
I hope you like it.  I am off for the week to care for some
of my grandchildren while their parents frolic on a beach
somewhere.....something wrong with that scene I think if I am the one staying 
where the temps are cold?
