Always a Lady

     Today is Great Impression Friday and I have a lovely feminine card for you today.

     I began by creating a shimmering paper using plain white card stock and various shimmer mists from Tattered Angels.  Once the paper dried, I stamped G456 Scent of a Rose and J101 Lace Doily on the paper with Versafine ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder.  I cut these images out and then created a background paper from the same shimmering card stock using C415 Rose Time Piece.

    I matted the two cut images and placed them on my card front.  I knew I wanted a fancy border for this card and I had just the right punch, an around the page punch from fFskars that featured a rose vine.

   The final touch were a few black embellishments and a double punched filigree butterfly.  The bottom butterfly is black and the top butterfly is shimmer paper.
