Toile Blossoms



HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY

This is a card I made several months ago, before starting my blog. It is a card I like so thought I would add it today since I don't have time to make another card today. To create the back panel, I used my ScorPal to create the grid then layered ScoreTape over the score lines. I poured gold embossing powder over it and the embossing powder stuck to the tape. I then heat embossed it. I used Classic Nestabilities to create the three frames and my Cuttlebug to emboss the two pink layers. A Martha Stewart punch was used for the border. The SU (retired) Toile Blossoms were stamped with Basic Black ink and colored with Colored Pencils and OMS. They were pieced along the side of the frame. The Verse is from Gina's "Elegant Flowers" and cut out with petite oval Nesties.

Hope you are enjoying your holiday. We are having a family gathering then going to the stadium to watch the fireworks show this evening.

Selma,

Have I seen this card before, when I was visiting you? If so, it is as beautiful as the first time I saw it. You never let me down because you always come up with the most beautiful creations.

Selma, your Toile Blossoms card is absolutely gorgeous! I love how you embossed the lines made with the ScorePal, great idea and something that I plan on trying. Your card has a lot of elements, each one so very elegant. Love everything about this card, and basically all the cards that you make.
