Flourish Filigree

I LOVE filigree’s and this one is irresistible! It was love at first site! The lines (or should I say “curves”) are so detailed and delicate lending an elegant feel to this simple card. When I stamp an image like this my first thought is to go with a metallic color but I really love the heat embossed Calypso Coral, it’s so fun to play with color…I just love my job!!

I heat embossed the vines from Sweet Storybook stamps set with Old Olive paper and ink. The sentiment is Old Olive ink on Vellum card stock with Crushed Curry background both punched with the Pretty Label punch.
