Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the back background, I ran a piece of Milk Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Celebrate Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design. I rubbed Blush Gilding Wax all over. Once dry, I inked around the edges with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.

I stamped the Justrite Floral Flourishes Background twice using Victorian Velvet. I cut it down into 3 panels and popped some Raspberry Card behind each one.

I stamped the image and the 'MAGNOLIA' stamp from the Spring Flowers Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured in using Pink Ultra and Golden Pear Mica Powders from the Cosmic Shimmer Garden Flora Mica Spray Set. I cut it out using Spellbinders Scalloped Labels One and inked through the die with Victorian Velvet. I cut a Spellbinders Captivating Square out of Raspberry Card.

I stamped 'Mum', again using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 28 and inked through the die with Victorian Velvet. I cut a Spellbinders Floral Oval out of Raspberry Card.

I assembled the card as shown adding a Pearl Swirl, some Cream Pearls in the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Vintage Pink around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

    What a beautiful bouquet of cards you have been making with all the flower stamps although the raspberry is a bit bright for me, but making a smaller rim of it would still work.
