I used the Elements of Style stamp set. I love this set, everyone should have it!! I stamped the swirl on vanilla card stock and then embossed it with the Square Lattice EF. I love this effect, it's so elegant. Then I stamped the flower, and then used a blender pen to add some basic grey to color the flowers. I sponged around everything with Crumb Cake. Don't you love this new color, it's great for distressing? I also tried the pleated ribbon treatment. This is my first time trying this, but I think I need to practice a little.

Thanks for stopping by!!
