Take Time

TGIF....and also Friday brings us to another new challenge at

For this challenge our lovely hostess is Vanessa and she has chosen the theme
of "Springtime Flowers"with 
"Sweet Lilac Flowers"
"Marianne Design"
 being our sponsors!

I had just purchased a new Marianne Design embossing folder
called Anja's Decorative Border.
I "built" my entire card around that.

I used a shimmer white card stock (cryogen white) to emboss
the folder on.
If you could see this IRL, you would notice the shimmer!

I found a very small "snippet" of scrap paper in my scrap paper bag,
 I love how it looks with the EB folder.

I ran a piece of a rose trim down where the two papers meet.
I used a few die cuts (listed at the post bottom), pink Roses
and made a pretty sheer pink bow.

I stamped a sentiment, added a few pearls to complete my card.

Head on over to the Fussy and Fancy blog 
and see what my Teammates have to inspire you,
they always have the most amazing creations!

Products I have used :
Marianne Design Anja's Decorative Embossing Folder
Cryogen White  card stock
White Pearls
