Just Because...

I have made this card for an online friend who is going through a rough patch right now so hopefully it will help her to keep her chin up! Again I started off with a sketch and kept changing it as I went along.

For the big flower, I have punched and distressed some flowers using the SU five petal punch, glued a Prima flower in the centre and then sprayed it with Glimmer Mist which you probably cannot see in the photo. After I embossed the background paper, I sanded the embossed areas to show them up more.

Stamps: Just Rite
Card: SU Blushing Bride, Very Vanilla, Blushing Bride DSP
Other: SU embossing folder, Five Petal punch, Border punch, Oval dies, ribbon and flowers from my stash.

Stunning work Jean! Beautiful color and detail. I love this border embossing. It adds so much to the card. Love the softness of the whole card itself. Great job on this, and I hope your blogging friend is doing OK. Best, Curt

Jean,

This is breathtaking! So elegant and dainty with those prima flowers and satin ribbon. You can never go wrong with Blushing Bride.
