I think this will be my last post today...I've been on a roll, CASEing Cindy over at Flourishes! :) I just love the look of her Botanical Bookplate card, and now I've got a little gift set for someone!


The only changes to this card from the previous two are that I used a strip of rhinestones at the top of the dp, used a different punch and embossing folder, and I stamped a bit of script text randomly across the dp in Vintage Photo ink. It just seemed too plain without it--maybe because the ribbons aren't as prominent on this card. The base ribbon is a shear white organza, and the top ribbon is a thin velvet.

And, contrary to my usual MO, I left the inside clean. It just seemed like the right thing to do on this one, ya know. ;)

Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
