Wishing You a Wonderful Beginning

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I spritzed a piece of Coconut White Card with Cosmic Shimmer Angel Pearl Mister, I dried it and then inked through the Doodle Daisies Mask with Stormy Sky Distress Ink. I then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Passion Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern and then inked around the edges with Stormy Sky using Cut n Dry Foam. I wrapped a piece of White Silky Crush Ribbon around the background where shown.

I stamped the image form the Creative Expressions Wonderful Beginnings Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Arctic Lake Lustre Embossing Powder. I cut it out with scissors. I cut a square motif from the Spellbinder Asian Motifs die set and inked through the die with Stormy Sky.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set again using Perfect Medium and embossed with Arctic Lake Lustre. I cut it out using Spellbinders Matting Basics B and inked through the die with Stormy Sky.

I assembled the card as shown adding a Pearl Swirl and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
