With the Warmest of Wishes...

I have been asked to make this card for Leon's Mum who wants to give it to her sister. When I first started out in card making many moons ago, I was heavily into decoupage, but then discovered stamping which has since become my passion. However as this card is for the "older lady" I decided to combine the two.

The decoupaged lady is from "Kanban" and she has been matted and layered onto a dry embossed background created with my birds and swirls embossing folder. She has been embellished with a murano feather, flowers and gems.

The scroll has been stamped and heat embossed with gold powder, it is a Penny Black stamp - 3978K Deco and then each flower has been embellished with green gems. The verses are from Lili Of The Valley - Clear Additions sentiment sheet and were also heat embossed in gold. They read:

"With the warmest of wishes
Here's a note to say
Whatever you do
Have a wonderful day"

"Today's a celebration
And this card is to show
Just how much you mean
and how special
you are to know"

I also opted for a tri fold card as it's a little different from my usual square cards and shows of the main image well.
