For Jill

My friend Jill of RibbonChallenged is celebrating her birthday tomorrow and this is the card I made for her. I gave it to her a bit early so she could enjoy a little shopping at a local store where we both love to shop. I stamped the large SU! Fifth Avenue Floral rose image 3 times with Versamark on Prism Azalea light cardstock and embossed each one with gold ep. I hand cut and popped up the layers with dimensionals. I added a few vellum leaves and some gold beads. The lattice was hand-woven with strips of lightly sponged cardstock and layered on another panel that was embossed with the swiss dots ef. I cut the window opening with a Spellbinders labels 4 and went around the embossed edge carefully with a gold deco pen. The tag was done with my Cricut and stamped & embossed with a Sweet'nSassy sentiment. The smaller flowers are by Technique Tuesday.
This photo gives you an idea of what the layering looks like up close. I made a matching money envelope but I didn't take a picture of it, can you believe it? Thankfully Jill took did take one and posted it in her blog here! Jill's favorite color is pink and her favorite flower is a rose, so I think I got this one right :) Happy Birthday Jill, I hope you enjoy a fabulous day tomorrow!!
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful weekend!

Carol, I knew you would take a much better photo of this fabulous card than I would. Wish everyone could see it in real life. So pretty, and your gold embossing is so delicate. The outlining with the gold pen...incredible! Such a fine steady line. You helped to make my birthday so special. Thank you again, my friend!

Carol, This card is unbelieveably beautiful. If someone was to try to buy something this pretty in a store, they would never be able to come even close. I absolutely love that lattice work with the swiss dot. I'm going to steal that one very soon. Talk to you soon.
