Victorian Charm


This card was done with one of Flourishes newest sets, Cottage Home. My background paper is from Basic Grey's Two Scoops and it reminded me a little of Victorian wallpaper with the cherubs on it. The heart-slide is also from Flourishes and the ribbon is from SU. I used my Martha Stewart fence punch and matched it to a "cobblestone" sidewalk which is the Tiny Bubbles embossing folder for my Cuttlebug. I really like how this turned out, although the coloring took me awhile, mainly because I was deciding as I went what colors to make the house. Thanks for stopping by. I'm off to try another one of my new Flourishes sets and then finish some cute Halloween projects. Have a wonderful rest of the week-end.

Great choice of paper and embossing to go with this lovely image. I have that cherub paper in my two scopps 6x6 pack of paper and didn't know what to do with it. Now I see it in a whole new light. That fence punch is a really great choice also to mimic the fence in the image.

Very clever with the fence punch and embossing folder. I love MS's picket fence punch. Beautiful card.
