Lilac Flowers


The challenge at Penny Black and More for the month of January is Stencils, Masks and Embossing folders and it is time for mid month inspiration.
I used a dotted embossed card for the background layer and  the lovely deep embossed "Tied together" embossing folder to make the foremost layer. This is my most favourite embossing folder as it is so versatile and looks really pretty with the addition of pearls. I also used the lovely daisy style flower stamp from a Penny Black set called Flower Festival which I water coloured. A few pearls, bows and ruffled ribbon finished it off.
For More inspiration projects and the sponsor list pop over to the Penny Black and More blog.
I have entered my card into the challenges listed below.
