Manhattan Floral Anniversary


I don't make too many CAS cards but here's one I had in my files to be posted. I used a SU! ef and colored the raised edges with a Copic marker. I'm sure it would have been much easier to ink the embossing folder to color the raised portions, but I suppose I enjoy doing things the hard way? LOL
I rounded the corners and placed it on a pink card base, and added a white heat-embossed anniversary sentiment on a black snippet, using a retired window punch. For the final touch, I added 3 random clear gemstones.

I'm sharing this with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge which is to make a Clean and Simple card this week.

I hope your Monday is off to a good start - thanks for stopping by!
