Sweet Morning Glory


I was leafing through my photo archives and found this sweet Morning Glory card that I haven't posted yet, so here it is :) I made this card last summer not long after the "Morning Soft" set was was released. I was so excited when I finally got this set that I ripped open the box, grabbed the stamp set and went to town...I left the box with the rest of my Stampin' Up! order still sitting in my entry way...in the middle of the floor....ask Bill...he tripped over it when he opened the door after picking up the kids from preschool! *chuckle*



I purchased this set not long after it came out and used my markers to watercolour it with. Like most of my cards, the image was embossed, watercoloured and paper toled. I added these sweet gemstone brads to the center of the flowers, just because I could *wink*



The pretty paper border along the side is a Fisgars embossing punch that I used on some vellum cardstock and I created the overly large photo corner by drawing it up free hand. I also got a chance to play with my new Stylized Silver Hodgepodge Hardware :) Ahh, I {heart} embellishments! They make me happy! *grin*
