Lavinia Stamps "Silhouette Thistles" on a Brusho Background

I couldn't sleep last night, so was up early and made this card.

I used a Brusho Background I had created some time ago as the base of this card.  I used the Lavinia Stamps "Silhouette Thistles" stamp, heat embossed using Wow! Clear ink pad and their Opaque Vanilla White Embossing Powder which I heat set.

Around the edge of the card, I used the following Lavinia Stamps (Maple Leaf, Foliage Set and Creeping Vine), with four colours of Versafine Clair Inks (Twilight, Blue Belle, Shady Lane and Nocturne).

I added extra detail with Posca Pens, Gel pens and Pastel Pencils.
