I'm Core'dinated!

It's the big blog hop today!! We hope you've got a really large beverage, a fluffy kitten and maybe a few hours to spend with us!  My card today uses a beautiful newer stamp from Stampendous aptly named Fuchsia stamped with Memento, colored with Copics and some Tim Holtz distress ink in Frayed Burlap around the edges.  My card base is Core'dinations Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection No.13 lightly sanded around the edges.  Rather than use patterned paper, I chose to use more Core'dinations with a panel of Tillie Spotted in Love Potion that I sanded.  I wrapped the panel with some gorgeous May Arts metallic wired ribbon and added my image with some pop dots.  I tied a bow with more May Arts ribbon and attached it with a Glue Dot.  A very simple card but really pretty!
