Using up some leftovers

I hope you are all enjoying the Easter Bank holiday weekend. I have just got home from working (no Bank holiday weekend off for me) and for a little chill out time thought I would just have a sit down with a cup of tea and post a card I made last week. The leftovers are the background which I was originally going to use in a design piece but changed my mind. I couldn't let it go to waste so I turned it into this:-
I created an 8 x 8 card I have mat and layered 3 times with coordinating coloured cardstock.

 The character is "Rosie" which is a Barbara Gray Clarity Stamp, this has been coloured with Copics and stuck with silicone to give it dimension off the page.
Sentiment stamp "Destiny" is from my stash (pity I didn't stamp it a little straighter)

The background uses a couple of Indigoblu background stamps, the first is Bubbles background which I have stamped using distress paints. I have then stamped the circle dot background stamp using a big and juicy ink pad and then punched out the circles. I have again stuck with silicone to give dimension. I have added candi dots and adhesive  pearls coloured with copics to add more interest.

Hope you all have a lovely long weekend.
Thanks for popping by
