Friends are the Family We Choose for Ourselves

Happy Saturday Crafty Friends! It's my turn to post for Creative Expressions and I have a Pink Floral make for you suing some fabulous dies by Sue Wilson.

This is the same card in a different angle and lighting
The flowers were stamped with Versamark then heat embossed with Gold EP. I then die-cut the flowers and multi Layered them. After doing that I took jewelry pliers and folded the ends of each petal  and pressed centers in with a ball end stylus tool. for giving these their shapes. A Gold Half-Pearl sits in the middle of each flower matching the gold dots on the Designer Paper.  The Sentiment sits in inside the raised framing and is covered with ultrafine white glitter for some sparkle and surrounded by mini-gold half pearls. 

Stamps: CE Elements Stamps - Camellia Ring Elements by John Lockwood
Ink:  Brilliance Archival Pigment Ink Pad  in Graphite Black, Versamark Watermark Clear Stamp Pad, Gold Embossing Powder
Paper: Designer Gold Foiled DP, White Cardstock, Gold textured Christmas Wrapping Paper

Accessories: MS Ultrafine White Glitter (for sentiment sparkle), Gold half-pearls, Gold Cording CE Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Glue (love this Stuff), Creative Expressions Craft Dies by Sue Wilson; Finishing Touches Orange Blossom Complete Petals Expressions Ornate Ovals My Friend, Spellbinders Circle Dies
