Best Wishes

I love making cards that have gold on them, either paper and/or embossing, I think they look so elegant.
1. Cut the ovals out using a Coluzzle, stamp the flower with Versamark ink and emboss with champagne embossing powder.
2. The background is stamped with a script with latte Adirondack ink, then the edges were stippled with mushroom ink.
3. Using a SU punch, punch the oblong strip out of lavender paper and apply stickers.
4. Tie different colored ribbons to the top and assemble!
Recipe
Stamps- flower by Stampendous, script by Hero Arts
Inks- latte and mushroom Adirondack, VersaMark
Plus- champagne embossing powder and stickers by Stampendous, misc ribbons, Coluzzle, SU punch

Jamie: I used that stamp in my first embossing class. Isn't it nice? Your card looks so pretty with it. You did that stamp a favour by making it nicer looking than it already is.
