Everything That Counts

I put this card together this afternoon for the Artistic Outpost blog....... goal was a "quick" card.

It didn't take me very long but I wouldn't categorize it as a "quick card". The only time I seem to be able to make a quick card is when I need one in 15 minutes. I'm often amazed at what I can do then.

I used the stamp shown from Mini Masterpiece for the card front & background behind the verse. Ranger Espresso ink was used on the card front & for the verse. I used clear embossing powder over the verse which is from the Geek is Chic set. The tag shape was cut with a Spellbinders die.
The framed image isn't very obvious because I added some gold embossing powder & shook about half of it off. After it was embossed, I stamped the image again in Espresso.
I added a few flowers with button centers & a narrow silk ribbon. The darker small flower was also stamped with the background stamp.
Until next time, thanks for stopping!
Happy stamping!
