Best Friends Forever

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Fauna Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Dusty Concord.

I stamped the Justrite Elegant Corners Labels Four Background using Perfect Medum and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer True White Detail Embossing Powder. I painted over the top with Pastel Lilac from the Cosmic Shimmer Pastels Watercolour Paint Set.

I stamped the frame and the sentiment from the Justrite Vintage Oval  Labels Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with True White Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 4 and inked through the die with Dusty Concord.

I stamped 3 flowers from the Justrite Black-Eyed Susan Vintage Labels Five Clear Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with True White Powder. I coloured them in with Cosmic Shimmer Pastel Lilac Watercolour and Lilac Gold Sparkle from the Cosmic Shimmer Lovely Lights Sparkle Pigments.

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

Thanks for stopping by.
