Flowers and Splatters


I made this card some time ago and missed blogging it.
The star of the show is the flower stamp, which is one from a magazine.
I stamped and embossed, then masked the two pink flowers and sprayed the card with the purple spray.

I then stamped, gold embossed and trimmed the centre image, and mounted it on foam, tucking some rose buds behind two of the intersections.

The final detail was some white ric rac that had some wee red tufts on it placed diagonally across the corners, the lower one being layered over some purple organza ribbon.

Oh my friend,this is so gorgeous...I love the embossed image in gold. I would also like to thank you for your endless encouragement and friendship and for not getting tired of reading my posts. I always look forward to what your comments every time I make a project as you don't miss...LOL I am so delighted you blessed us with your project during our two-week Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. This week's Challenge is still ongoing and I hope you’ll join us again. Leaving you with God’s Word in 2 Corinthians 5:17-18 which says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation:” Have an awesome New Year!
