Embossed Papillon Potpourri Card

Hi Everyone!

The card I have to share with you today I originally thought I would be posting as part of my blog hop post the other day but...

I chose the wrong color blue when designing the card.  Instead of pulling bashful blue I grabbed Baja Breeze.  It doesn't make me like the card any less (lol) I just had to wait until today to share it with you.

Pin It
Decided to go with a more vintage feel with this card.  
  • Dry Embossing every layer and then sponging with Crumb Cake ink gives this card lots of texture. 
  • You'll find the new Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder that I used on the Crumb Cake layer in the new Holiday Catalog.  I can tell it's going to be one of my new favorites!
  • This is Stampin' Up!'s new Butterfly Punch and it coordinates perfectly with the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set.  
  • I'm into pearls right now which is always a perfect vintage touch.
I was asked to choose my favorite embellishment  at a meeting last week and that's really difficult with all that Stampin' Up! has to offer right now. I did however choose....pearls.  How about you?  Would love to hear from you...leave a comment sharing your favorite embellishment.

Before I leave you today I  want to share this cute upbeat video.  My birthday's today and I'm wondering if I'll have a digitally created birthday party like in the video.   Probably not... but what I really wanted for my birthday is My Digital Studio 2 Plus instead of just the upgrade.  

I'm happy to say sweet mom gave me My Digital Studio 2 Plus for my Birthday...AWESOME!  As soon as I finish here I hope to get it downloaded! Happy Birthday to Me!!!
