Using a Layout from Kristina's Blog

Hi! I saw a card on one of my favorite blogs, and thought I could create a card using the same layout. It's pretty close, but I turned it 90 deg. At first when I created this card, I didn't have the embossed images at the bottom on the Barely Banana Cardstock. I liked it, but I thought it was missing something. I tried using an embossing folder with my Cuttlebug, but didn't like that either. So I embossed the same image in Clear Embossing Powder. I like how it turned out. Also, I layered my Very Vanilla CS with the stamped image with Dimensionals on another piece of Very Vanilla CS.

Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes
Ink: Perfect Plum, Versamark
Paper: Kraft, Perfect Plum, Barely Banana
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, Corner Rounder, Ivory Taffeta Ribbon, Clear Embossing Powder
