Dandelion!

Good afternoon lovelies! Well what about this bloomin English weather, was lovely this am and now it's peeing down grrr! 
Today's card I am entering into http://thecupboardtrilogychallenges.blogspot.co.uk/ the theme is embossed, o do I love embossing? Dry, heat you name it I love it, it adds such dimension to a card. 
8x8 cream scalloped card base! Matted with more cream card that I'd pierced round the edge, more cream card this time I cut, the smaller side I stamped with my fabulous C Ex dandelion wishes stamp set in peeled paint DI and lightly inked the edges with bundled sage DI, the bigger side I stamped second generation to get a more delicate image with peeled paint and bundled sage DI using the same stamp, I then ran it through my beloved grand calibur, using m-bossability folder, to cover the join I used a lovely sage green ribbon, the topper is the smallest of the new grand nesties circles, I lightly inked with bundled sage DI, then I stamped the Dandelion and sentiment all from the same set with peeled paint DI then heat embossed with clear EP, I mounted it onto 3D foam for dimension, I deliberated on whether to add flowers and foliage and decided, in this case less is more, what do you think? Thanks for visiting, much appreciated xxx

What a gorgeous card! I love the simple colours you have used and the half flat and half embossed backing. The stamps are beautiful and leaving it plainer with just the lovely ribbon really worked. It's stunning!
