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.
