Bordering on Romance

Happy Saturday stamping friends...

Today I have a card to share that uses tons of embossing folders... I seem to have gotten carried away with this one.  I like all the textures though.

The base of the card is certainly celery (a favorite), with pink pirouette and whisper white.  I used my nestabilities labels 9 for the center area and then used the Stampin' Up! designer frames embosslet - punched out the middle with my large oval punch - and affixed the small flowers in place.  I also used the adorning accents embossing folder to give a separation between the colors.  Basically, I "emptied" out all my folders and dies and used them all - LOL - not really, but this is a bit of overkill.   The stamp set is SU's Bordering on Romance which I colored with Copics and then cut out the larger flowers and added a couple of medium sized pearls to the frame.  I hope you enjoy the card.

I'm leaving now to work on my bows... hehe... this one looked fine IRL but I think it looks pretty sad in the picture.  I seem to have a tendency to undertie (is that even a word?), since I try to keep my cards mail friendly... this one needs tightening... and fluffing :-)

Have a great day and I'll see you soon.  Don't forget to leave a few words so I'll know someone's been here - snif*
