Many Happy Returns

I had picked up this magazine that comes in a box at Barnes and Noble bookstore just before all this covid stuff hit, I decided I needed to break it open. The embossing folder and stamps came in the box.

I first embossed the background then I did some blending with my inks and my blending tool. over the embossed areas.  I then took a yellow ink and went over the center area.  I colored the stamped image with my markers and cut it out.  I felt it needed a little more and I have a roll of this loose weave mesh that I believe I picked up at Hobby Lobby a few years ago, so I put that down for a mat for my flowers to rest on and then finished it off with a little bow! Had to add a few gems to top it off!

So much wonderful texture on your beautiful card Connie. The inked embossing is so pretty and makes everything else just pop off the card. Hope you had a lovely Mother's day yesterday.

What a fun embossed background, color and use of burlap.

The pretty pastel colours in this gorgeous card are joyous, Connie. Another beautiful one-if-a-kind card. I love your store Barnes and Noble. Why, if I lived in the US I think I could happily spend many, many hours in this store.
