Freshly Made

When I saw the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches I knew right away 
that I wanted to use embossing paste. I used the Tim Holtz bubble 
stencil and applied the embossing paste that I mixed with some 
Tim Holtz peacock feathers distress ink. I love how it turned out.

I love that this card is simple and fun but I have to say that
the ribbon is stressing me out. I wanted to switch it out for some 
linen thread but my daughter made me leave it. She said it looked
nice and that it's out of my comfort zone which is why it's
bothering me. I may just have to make another one with linen thread.

I popped the Koala and the flower up on dimensionals, added
some glossy accents to the nose and the center of the flower, stamped
the greeting, added a few pearls and it's done.
