Just a note, and Freshly Made Sketches challenge #290
As soon as I saw this sketch this Doily stamp popped into my mind. It is retired I'm sorry to say, but still a favorite of mine, I hope you have it. Both my ribbons on this are also retired. I can't seem to keep up with new ribbon, but this new catalog has so many gorgeous ribbons, I shall be buying again.
I simply good embossed just part of my stamp with Versamark ink. I laid a piece of printer paper above where I wanted to stamp to protect the rest of my card, inked up the bottom of my stamp and stamped and embossed in Gold.
Both of these ribbons, the black is a stitched satin ribbon and the gold was in the Holiday catalog along with a spool of silver. And although they were both listed as the same size there was just enough of a difference to layer and show off just the edges of black.
I layered a black piece, 4 1/8" by 5 3/8", then made my top layer 4"x 5 1/4", that left just a tiny bit showing of the color underneath.
I cut one each of the little flowers in Bloomin Hearts die set, put a pearl in the large one and just put the little one by my sentiment. I think in this photo you can actually see the glitter of the Glimmer paper.
It is a pretty simple, but I think elegant card you could use for many occasion.
