Flowers...

Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is my card for today where I have used my new rubber stamp from Stampendous and have coloured the image with Prisma pencils. It looked rather pretty until I thought of being super creative by going ahead with embossing it. I wanted to emboss with my Swiss dots folder but used this one instead and the whole image actually got washed out. By the way it looks much nicer in real life and the black and white polka dotted ribbon does not stand out like a sore thumb!!!

I will enter this card in the following challenges:

Wish you nice Thursday.

Love,
Monica

Love your embossing folder with the great texture, Monica! I don't have that one, and it sure looks amazing used in this fashion - like expensive hand-made paper. Your hero arts "peacock" color card below looks fabulous with the sequins and beautiful lace. Like you had to search high and low to find these elements. I can always count on something new when visiting your site - not the "same old style". It is fun trying new things all the time, isn't it? hugs, de
