Sweet Stamps- Flowers

The Sweet Stamps Challenge this week is Flowers.

   This Cutwork Card image-which I love- takes me back to my sewing days....Cutwork is just so beautiful to me!  The image is stamped on Parchment Vellum and embossed in White Detail Embossing Powder. I used my tools for Parchment to cut out areas of the vellum-both around the Rose and in the corners. The 4-Split tool cuts out around the edge of the Vellum.
  The Rose is colored with Shades die inks (Spots) in Tank and Fuschia Fizz from the back side of the vellum. On the inside- Happy Anniversary..........  It is my Parents 58th Wedding Anniversary this Thursday : )

Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my card:
