Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Velvet Tea Lights Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design.

I stamped the Justrite Stitched Frame Background onto Black Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Birthday Floral Vintage Labels 8 & 9 Clear Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 8.

I stamped the flower from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival onto an offset cut from my Cricut Explore.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Black Pearls to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Black Pearl PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
