I cut 1-3/8" inch wide strips of White, Spring Rain, Blueberry Sky, and Enchanted Evening cardstock and adhered them to a white card base in graduated order. Using images from Nostalgic Notions, I embossed a large flower and leaves in a random pattern using Denim embossing powder. I love how different it looks on each strip of color!
I cut my sentiment using the Wonderful Words: Congrats die. Before gluing it down, I created a thread nest underneath with silver metallic thread. It subtly frames the word with just a touch of shimmer. This card is perfect for a wedding. Now who's getting married? :)
