Botanical Birthday

I made this card for this weeks Timeless Tuesday challenge - Cards with Cardboard, that is, embossing.  Well, I'm a big fan of embossing folders and this is one of my favourites - Textile (Cuttlebug).  I used it for the background (which is also punched with a Martha Stewart border punch) and also for the frame around the image, made by using two Spellbinders Classic Ovals.  The image is from Flourishes Botanical Bookplates Vol 2 stamp set and the sentiment is from Flourishes Sweet Violets set.  I stamped the pansy image with Memento ink onto blending card, coloured it with copics and sponged some Versacolor lilac ink on the background.  Then I die cut the image piece with a large oval die, adhered the embossed frame to it, and used foam tape to mount it onto a lilac Lacey Oval.

Copic Colours used were:  V04, V06, V12, Y13, Y21, Y35, Y38, G43, G46.

Thanks for coming to visit!
