Vintage Sympathy

A challenge card for you today; this week over at Just Add Ink they want us to Just Add a Flower. I bought a whole bunch of paper roses in a sale a few weeks back and hadn't gotten around to using any of them, so that suited me just fine!

I decided to make a card using muted tones and gave my brayer a little workout with some two-toned embossing. Some new rubber arrived in the mail yesterday and I was dying to try them out! Here's the result:

Materials used:
  • stamps - Our Daily Bread and Stampin' Up!
  • card - crumb cake, very vanilla, soft suede and Baja breeze (all SU)
  • other - Beautiful Wings embosslit die, vintage wallpaper embossing folder, brayer, dimensionals, Baja breeze seam binding (all SU); leaf punch (Carl), labels die (Nestabilities), paper flowers (Kaiser),

Thanks for dropping in.

I really love this one. The butterfly's are a nice touch. However, I can't help but feel there's a more appropriate blue for this colour scheme... :-P
