And the answer is . . .

No, I couldn't sleep in. I did stay in bed until 7:15, but I wasn't sleeping. Oh well.

So, here is another card creation for you. The stamp was colored with markers and blended to get the two tones on the flowers. I mounted it onto the rose red cs that was punched with Fleur de Lis border punch. The sentiment was stamped, then cut/embossed with the Spellbinders Petite Ovals LG. To get just the small border of the rose red, I carefully trimmed the embossed edge off the vanilla layer and then attached it to the rose red oval. They are both cut with the same die. Get it? It is easier to do than to explain. lol I added a few lovely jewels and mounted it onto the CB swiss dots layer and then onto the rose red card. Oh yeah, the little corner embellishments are the scraps made when I punched the border. May as well use them, eh? Waste not, want not!



Thanks for stopping by!
