A Little Embossing

     This week just zoomed by, and there was not much crafting time to be had.  I was going through my card stock scraps, and these two colors landed next to each other on my desk top..... hmmmm.  That is how my Friends with Flair snippets card was born.
 

     Cranberry and lime green, who would have thought.  I punched the tiny banners and heart using SU! punches. I also used a SU! scallop punch for my little border.   My sentiment and image are both from the September KOM at Unity, and silver embossed.  What a lovely Jacobean flower!  I added a bit of paper piecing with the same scraps as my punches.  For embellishments, I used silver sequins and pearls, and a couple of silver mini brads.  My little heart is coated in glossy accents (sorry it is not showing up).

 
     So after all that, I went back and added a bow in lime green.... can't decide, so here are both.

I would like to enter this card at:

Pixie's Snippets Playground #142-  Use up those scraps

Unity Friends with Flair-  weekly link

     Always happy for your visits.  The weather is changing here in PA, and it won't be long before the leaves color
and fall.  My favorite time of year!

I would have never thought those colors would be pretty together - and then WOW! This is absolutely stunning. The green just really pops and still keeps it so elegant looking.
