Lace Embossing

This card, created for At Joan's Garden's Challenge #15 (girly card, use pastels, flowers, and bows),  is a soft pink diecut window gate-fold  card.  It is inspired by the Darlene Pavlick on page 49 of the March edition of the  Papers and Pixels Magazine.
The die I used is Spellbinders Labels 18  S4-310, and under the flowers is B161 Lace Corner Deco A--a Cheery Lynn Designs Die. Both dies are available at Joans Gardens.com.  The stamp I used for the card front lace is a very intricate Penny Black Background stamp that I bought in 2000.  It is heat embossed with pearl- fine detail embossing powder by Sweet Stamps (also available at Joan's Gardens). The gate-fold card is closed with a bow. For the roses I used two from I am Roses.com and one that is punched from a Mc Gill punch.   They are layered on a small tulle bow.  The stamp is a Lili of the Valley stamp, "A Saucer of Milk" from her darling "Girlie collection."  worked on Tim Holtz specialty paper with archival ink and colored with a combination of watercolor pencils and Tim Holtz distressing markers. Lili was a featured contributor with lots of tips and tricks in the February edition of the Papers and Pixels Magazine, p 112.  This probably will become a get well card, but I have not cut the sentiment for the inside (using the same die as window) yet.
