Elegant Embossing

Time for some fun stamping...I have finished the order of twenty cards to be delivered tomorrow and needed a few general cards to go with them...I think I have eye strain from all the colouring of images over the past 3 weeks - 50 in all!! So I thought embossing would be a nice change. I have not inked up this Flourishes image before and I have to say, it makes a lovey card so easily! I sponged around the edges and also in the middle, adding a flower, which was part of a RAK from my friend Pam (aka pam124) and added a button!

This was layered on paper from Memory Box and knotted ribbon was added - this was also from Pam (aka pam124) .

I also used the Flora and Fauna set from Kaiser along with the SU Wonderful Words (that you have got to love!) and used the Fiskar border punch (Sunburst) very simple card finished off by adding some sponging and paper piercing! It is a popular card at 'The Shabby Attic' so I made it in a couple of colours! I am still thinking about inking the butterfly on the pink and green one!!
