Thank you for all the great comments. I am very blessed with a wonderful family who really appreciates me, though they could express that by keeping the house cleaner, goodness knows! After all, I have important things to do! Like work, stamp, work, stamp, work and stamp!
Now I will show you another card:
Ingredients: Stamps – Forever Young, Faith in Nature; Paper – Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Early Espresso, Whisper White; Ink - Early Espresso, Regal Rose, Daffodil Delight; Other – Word Window Punch, Boho Blossoms Punch, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, Adorning Accents Embossing Folders, Early Espresso 1/8” Taffeta ribbon, Pretty in Pink ½” Scallop Dots ribbon, So Saffron 3/8” Taffeta ribbon, Gold Brads, Stampin' Sponge wedges, Whisper White Medium Square Envelope.
What is unique about this, besides the ribbon embellishment, is the embossed border. This is one of the Adorning Accents edge embossing folders that I carefully embossed around each edge, using my stylus to help join up the corners to create a square. The background is simply sponged to get the beautiful sunset. I did stamp one of our square envelopes to match (very sad those have retired! I used them a lot!) which you can see underneath the card.
Well, tonight is card class and I still need to design one more card now that I have my minimum lines for work in today. Ta!
