PPC #91 - Happy Anniversary

Hi, a quick post to share a card for the Playing in Paradise Challenge - Happy Anniversary.  I have been trying to use up existing CS, so I picked up a piece pink one and continue from there.


Embossing folder (Cuttlebug 37-1153 Textile).  I dry embossed the CS and then sand it down a bit, then rub Archival Brilliance (Moonlight White) on the raised area.  Die cut window with Hero Arts Frame Cut (DI006).  I cut very thin white and green CS strips and bundle them as shown in place of leaves for the homemade paper flower.

TFL.

I haven't heard of this challenge, so will have to check it out. You knocked this one out of the park with that soft sanded color background and what a brilliant idea for the "leaves". It all comes together for a real winner, Cindy.
