A Beautiful Thing



I finally got a chance to create a card with the "A Beautful Thing" Stamp Set....

After I have seen all the wonderful creations on SCS I was not quite sure what I wanted to do....

The funny part is I wanted to make a card for Mary Jo Albrights Challenge and I came up with something completely different....so I still have to think of something for the challenge...but I'm still pleased with this card!

The base of the card is Whisper White CS which I punched the corners with the Corner Punch as well as a strip of Wild Wasabi that was punched to create a scalloped edge. Then I layered the Prints DSP Rose Red on top and covered that with a Whisper White 1/4 "Grosgrain Ribbon.

I also placed some medium Silver Brads from Making Memories on the bottom right side and in the middle of the flower image.
The solid flower image of that set was stamped on a Wild Wasabi CS with Wild Wasabi Ink and than cut out. The other flower image was stamped on Whisper White with a Purley Pomegranate Ink and cut out too. Then layered with Stampin Dimensionals in between the flowers and on the back of the Wild Wasabi flower to raise the image even better.

Before I placed the flower part on the other Whisper White CS I stamped the sentiment on first and then centered the flower. After that I also raised that layered CS with Stampin Dimensionals.....
