Unidentified Images -round 9-



                                                     *Click on the image if wishing to enlarge*

 
Hello Friends and Bloggers,
This is the card I created for the 9th round of the Unidentified Images swap on SCS,
hosted by April. (SCS : Aprilo)  She also provided the image (in this case it's the sentiment)
to all of us partecipants.....I love this sentiment (have this 'Unity' stamp as well)
It is so versatile and can be used for such diverse uplifting occasions too.
 
The card is fairly simple to make but I always love the end results w/ this technique
I used 'Victorian' CB folder to wet emboss the background by
smoothing the ink of choice over the inside of the folder thus obtaining this effect
(sorry I can't remember the name of this technique, please lmk if you do...txs! ♥ )
I also glittered the word 'believe' in the sentiment wich rests over a scalloped rectangular nestie and supported by dimentionals. Other accessories:  a wide (7/8") organdy ivory ribbon, a group of shimmering ivory flowers and pearls.
 
Hope both the hostess and the recipients will enjoy these cuties ♥
 
 
 
 
Thanks for stopping by, your visits and comments
 are always appreciated! God Bless!

Sweet Pea these are stunning - love the colour you have used with the embossing folder, and the sentiment really takes centre stage on your card. The ribbon and flowers are the perfect touch.
