Elegant card

Hello everyone,

I hope you all had a great weekend!  I know I was able to get into my craft room a bit more than usual so I am excited.  I was able to make about 4-5 cards which compared to last weekend I didn't get any done!  It seams that sometimes I can spend 3 hours trying to craft but nothing comes about but then some days I'm in there for less than 2 hours and I get a bunch of cards done!!  I've come to the realization that I want to always make that perfect card and like Kristina Werner said during one of her videos..."it's just a card".  And you know what?  It is!!  As much as I love then they are just cards and I know those who get my cards will love them because they were hand made.

Now on to my card.  I've really been liking the monochromatic colour schemes lately.

I started with Wendy Vecchi's embossing paste on Recollections 110# white card stock.  I used a Heidi Swapp stencil that I picked up at my local Michaels.  I don't know the name of it but it's the 6x6 that comes with the heart stencil.

Before the paste dried I covered it with Recollections pearl embossing powder and then I let it dry.  I then heat set it with my heat tool and you can see how awesome it turned out.  I can't get enough of this look.  

For the tag I used Mama Elephant's Tag's a Lot and Simon Says Stamp's Bitty Butterfly stamps and die set and I used the second and third sizes and die cut them out of velum after heat embossing with Hero Arts white embossing powder.

To finish off the card I used Pretty Pink Posh's Marshmallow 6 mm sequins and I LOVE how they look on this card.   The rope I used at the top of the tag is something I was given from a long time ago and I have no idea where it's from or the name of it but I love it.

Thanks for stopping by!
