Plant Smiles

I made this card for two reasons: this week's CCEE challenge to use red, black, creamy caramel, and an accent color such as white or ivory. (I added some green for the leaves...hope that passes...I skated through by the skin of my teeth last week...LOL). We were also to include some dry embossing on dp. Mine is on the black scalloped layer. Hopefully you can see it better on the close-up photo below. The second reason for this particular card is for JustRite week at Stamper's Dream.

I stamped the sentiment from one of the new sets called Seeds of Kindness with Versamark, and embossed it with Detail Black ep by Judikins. (I love sentiments!!) And the glorious paper is from one of my all time favorite companies, Graphic 45. I used paper from all three new paper packs: A Proper Gentleman, Le Romantique, and On the Boardwalk.

Here's a close up of the flower: (ETA: It's made with the Blossom Nestabilities die (Spellbinders)


Don't you just love these yummy papers? *sigh*

Hi Tosh..... I have enjoyed looking at your blog and you have created many beautiful things. I was wondering what you used to make the flower on the card Plant Smiles. I love the size off it.
Thanks for your time
