I came across this flower the other day. It was in the very first set of Cuttlebug embossing folders I got. I have rarely used it, but I still like it. I used it to emboss directly on a card front, then I realized that I liked the 'de-bossed' side, too. I was thinking that sponging on the reverse side would make the de-bossing white. So, I sponged the flower with Positively Pink and the stem and leaves with Certainly Celery. I mounted it on Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery, and added a couple score lines and some ribbon. The DP is from DCWV Nana's Nursery - Girl. Oh, I also embossed the flower again on So Saffron, cut out the center, rubbed it in Versamark, and embossed it with Kaleidoscope embossing powder. It needed a little something more and I remembered Sharon Johnson' challenge to use 'ribbon tabs.' You can find her challenge here: http://notimetostamp.blogs.splitcoas...e-been-tabbed/.

Lynette, this is such a pretty card ... the soft colors and the ribbon and your CB embossing is delightful! TFS! (Enjoyed peeking at your blog, too!)
