You're Absolutely Fabulous!

Hi Bloggers.

A girly card today. Quite simple.

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Adagio Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern and inked around the edges with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I cut a frame out of Burgundy Card using the largest 2 dies from the Spellbinders decorative Labels 8 set. I also cut the second smallest die out of Burgundy Card. I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Classic Sentiments Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with clear embossing powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 28 and inked through the die with Aged Mahogany.

I tied a bow using Ivory/Burgundy Grosgrain Ribbon, added a Red Dazzler and a couple of Crystal Decorative Stick Pins.

I assembled the card as shown adding an 8mm White Pearl to each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
