This card too me way too long (and too many wasted pieces of cardstock) to make. Maybe it's because I've been home sick; yeah, that's what I'll blame it on. :-)
I love the look of bravo burgundy and bashful blue together, but it took me forever to decide how to do the three panels. I ended up doing the polished stone technique on the upper and lower panels using only the bashful blue. I used the heart embossing folder on the upper panel and used my marker to make dots and stitches. For the lower panel, I stamped the bitty bold heart in burgundy. Used just a portion of my tag punch for the sentiment panel. The burgundy ribbon looks darker in my picture than IRL where it matches the silk flower really well.

It's so worth it! I love this card, the work you put into it is quite evident! I bet the polished stone technique behind the embossing is so much prettier in real life! It's a wonderful card, the flower is to die for! Glad you are feeling a wee bit better!
