You are in my thoughts

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I popped a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Bon Jour Embossing Folder. I inked around the edges with Raisin Adirondack Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Trees of Imagination Stamp Set using Plum Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Scalloped Labels One and inked through the die with Raisin Adirondack.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Plum Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using the Spellbinders French Frills die set and inked through the die with Raisin.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of American Seam Binding in Tropic Wine and added a Medium Circle Dazzler.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 3mm and 5mm White Pearls in the top 2 corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
