Beautiful



I had one more idea for Sharon's challenge #18 and
since it was raining all day yesterday I couldn't resist making another card....

I used my new Berry Bliss DSP and started cutting
a square with my Hobby Blade - it didn't have to be perfect since I was tearing and distressing it anyway!!!

Underneath I attached a Close Cocoa CS that I had punched out with the 1 1/4 " punch.I also cut around the the outside of that square to have an easier time to adhere it on the back of the DSP...that basicly made the second CS inside of the window.

The flower from "A Beautiful Thing" was embossed with White EBP. After I added some Stampin Dimensionals on the back I placed the flower on a Whisper White CS and finished it with a Pearl Rhinestone.

Then I adhered the whole thing to my base Cardstock "Close to Cocoa".

Of course I had to add the beautiful Satin Ribbon, the Jumbo Brads which also have the Pear Rhinestones on top.....
