Elegant Maribel

This is a stunning Stempelglade stamp called Maribel that my friend brought across when we had a crafty day last week, isn't she beautiful, she needs very little adding to make a gorgeous card. I've used her for Sketch & Stash's Challenge. As ever, they want to know neglected and new stash: I've used new Basic Grey Capella DP, new Prima flowers bought from Quixotic Paperie and the sparkly adhesive ribbon across the card is neglected stash; a Laura Ashley set I bought and haven't used. Sentiment is an Elusive Images stamp.

I coloured Maribel with Copics and sponged Distress Ink all around the image. Couldn't find a Nestie that fitted the image so I used the deckle edged rectangle and kept moving it till I had the size and proportions I wanted, working on one side at a time. I'm entering this for the Basic Grey Challenge to use a punch (hope the Nestie counts?)
