Embossed Friend

I wish I could send this card to all of you that have emailed me and let comments giving me encouragement. It means a LOT to me. You are ALL my Fabulous Friends! I love the stamping community for that! Lest I be banned, my Cookie (Lee) Sisters have been absolutely fabulous, as well. I got into an expo at a local pizza place... the event is called Sip-N-Shop... how cute?! Anyway, the event turns out to be 2 days after my surgery to remove the cancer. My Cookie Sister (and adopted upline) said she would do it for me if I wasn't up to it, AND give me the profit. Can you believe that?!?! Mel - I don't know what I would do without you! Ok, before I get too sappy, let me explain this OMG SIMPLE card...
Stamp Set: Oval All
Ink: Certainly Celery
Paper: Blush Blossom (base), Whisper White (oval), Certainly Celery (scallop oval)
Accessories: Whisper White Organza ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals, Ice Circle Rhinestone brad, Taken with Teal Stampin' Write marker (to color flower)
Punches: Scallop Oval, Large Oval
Big Shot: Manhattan Flower textured impressions die
Seriously - that's it! I started to sand over the die, but it didn't really make a difference because the Blush Blossom was so light, so I stopped wasting my time. Now, the ribbon... I did a little differently here. But it's CRAZY easy... All I did was fold down the edges and secure the fold with tape runner. Yup, that's it! I had to use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the scalloped oval because of the rhinestone brad and the folds of the ribbon, but you can't see it. Pop dots would be too tall for this. My husband loved this card, so the moms will be getting something similar for Mother's Day. Speaking of husband... he will be HOME TOMORROW!!!!! Only for two weeks, but I'll take it! I may be light in posting over the next two weeks, as I spend time with him instead of my stamps, but I'll be back. Until next time...
