Valentine Floral

Hi , Friends !

Thought I would show a card I recently made. I am certainly in a bold flower mood with lots of color ! If you say there must be too much snow there , you are absolutely right ! Spring and it's gorgeous colors can't come soon enough for me !

I have embossed and colored this card with both SU markers and touches of Copics which allowed me to bring out more pop ! I stamped the blossom twice on Neenah white , embossed just one of the images and colored as stated above, blending and shading as needed for richness and contrast. Both were cut out. A black mat and frame were cut out with Labels Three Nesties. The white panel behind the flower was embossed with CB's Victorian folder. The border is a new Martha Stewart punch. I'll leave the recipe below.

Thanks so much for stopping by today to visit !

Stamp: unknown
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark
Paper: American Craft, SU Black, Neenah white
Accessories: Martha Stewart punch, CB folder, pearls, satin ribbon, Bow Easy, sticky dots, Spellbinders Labels Three
