Fleur De Lis in Mauve

Hello friends, thanks so much for stopping in.  Today's card was inspired by a tag that came with a beautiful gift.  It has been created using a retired Layers of Colors stamp set.

I have created a card base and added a card front that has been cut/embossed using the Spellbinders Nestabilities Celebrations Pierced Rectangles Etched Dies #5 #6 (#1 being the smallest) and Graphic 45 The Secret Garden Collection. The embossed edges have been lightly sanded using a Sanding Block.  This has been popped up using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  The next layer has also been cut using the Pierced Rectangles #3 #4 (#1 being the smallest) using mauve card stock and popped up onto the centre of the card front using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.

The next layer has been cut/embossed from the Spellbinders Nestabilities Romantic Rose Etched Dies #2 (#1 being the smallest) and popped up onto the layered card front using  3D Foam Squares.  The tag has also been popped up, at an angle with Want2Scrap 250 Count White Pearls  adhered to the top of the tag, along with a tassel. A recycled butterfly and Mulberry Paper Rose has been glued on to the right of the tag.
