Layered Roses and Horsehair

Hello friends, thank so much for stopping by and welcome to my new followers - I hope you are inspired when you visit!  I have been working hard getting ready for the Australian Mixed Media Roadshow which starts in Perth on 13 July, from there we are in Sydney and finishing in Noosa.  As you can imagine it is going to be amazing - I am hoping to post regularly from there and share photos and updates....but until then - today's card...

...I have embossed cardstock using the Spellbinders Horsehair Embossing Folder by Licensed Designer Tammy Tutterow.  The texture on this folder is fabulous and so versatile, I have sponged lightly over it using Imagine Crafts Memento Ink in Teal Zeal and a Sponge Dauber.

The Altenew Flower was a free set with the Australian Simply Cards #94 - I love this set and am having a lot of fun 'mastering' it.  I have used Imagine Crafts Inks for the rose.  This has been popped up onto a white Fleur de Elegance Die-cut.  White lace has been added, along with a double seam binding bow and recycled button. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner and 3D Foam Squares have been used on this card. The beautiful bling is from from Want2Scrap.
