For Always With Petal


In my continueing quest to pair my current favorite Close to My Heart paper pack, For Always, with every color cardstock I have, this is it with Petal, a lovely purple that was retired recently.  I still can't get enough of January's Stamp of the Month!  This time I embossed it with silver which made it a challenge to photograph.  The ribbon rose is leftover from a package of embellishments meant for clothing that I bought years ago when my daughter was little.  It just goes to show that you don't have to limit yourself to the paper crafting section when looking for cool stuff for cards.  Here is the inside:

I used this layout from Freshly Made Sketches:
Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time, Hansi
