Turkish Delight

Hi everyone out there in blog land hope you are all ok!  I've been busy trying to get to grips with my Big Shot Pro, I realised when I ordered it I would need some extra cutting pads to be able to do Spellbinders and other dies which I ordered the same time as my machine.  However when it arrived I soon realised that I needed an extra cutting mat which I ordered yesterday and it came today - how good is that?  Thank you Cutting Edge Crafts plus it was free p and p on all orders!!

Todays card is a bit of Turkish Delight (yummy my favourite):

No its not a picture of sweets but a Turkish dancer!!  I have had this stamp absolutely years and years its by Rubber Tree Stamps. I think I originally ordered it from a shop because I had seen a similiar stamp used in a magazine and really liked it but I have never really used it to make a card with.  The papers are from Marianne and the dies I have used are all Spellbinders.  The bling embellishment I bought the other day from Fiona Jennings' Etsy Store - excellent service thank you Fiona.  I coloured it to match my paper with Copics and I also coloured the gem stones I put on the paper to match. The flower I made, colouring the material with some ink from Brilliance ink pads.  I will enter this card in the following challenges:
