There is something about a group of swirls and random shapes that is so beautiful and romantic. I used the spectacular flower from the May Flowers Framelet, embossed it 3 times to add the dimension I was after, I’m so in love with the results. It’s so fun to play with different techniques, some I love and do over and over, others, not so much;) I got this idea on Pinterest and I’m sorry I can’t find the original post to give credit to it’s creator. This is one of the first cards I made with Stampin’ Up products and I must confess I used some rhinestones from my old stash but the Rhinestone Basic Jewels will be equally dazzling.  Let me know what you think by leaving a comment. Thanks!
