Nature's Sentiment

JustRite Friday Challenge 053 is a technique to make your own flower embellishments.  Spellbinders is the sponsor of this challenge.

This card began with the selection of Graphic 45 "Curtain Call" Papers.  The sentiment from JustRite "Nature's Sentiment" was stamped on "Tour de France" and cut out with a Spellbinder beaded oval die, embossed and then distressed with Walnut Stain.  The background paper is "Pantomine" and mounted on "Leading Ladies".  Distress ink "Walnut Stain" was used on all edges and paper elements of the card.  The paper flowers were cut with the new Spellbinder "Rose Creation" die set and held together with gold brads from My Minds Eye and Bo Bunny.  Small ribbon flowers were created with a wire ribbon with gold specks (company unknown) and intertwined with the paper flowers.  Black swirl gems were added to finish the card.  Hope you enjoy.
