Damask - Spanish Olive

A bit of Spaish olive and cream make a wonderful colour combo so I dug out the nestabilities Label dies, Damask stamp(PTI), Bellas roller stamp(SU)and a Cuttlebug embossing borderand set to work.

Attention to detail...

I used a sheer olive ribbon this time and tied it in a know at the side of the image, as the card has lots going on I found the sheer ribbon just made it pop, I think a heavier ribbon would have swamped the card.


Where I used the Cuttlebug border to emboss I added stickled diamond to enhance the embossing more.

Jak,
Again you have created something really gorgeous. You have done a fabulous job on it all. Love the embossing and the Nestablilities and especially the bling on the border embossing.

I love that you have highlighted the embossing with stickles, it is just so effective.

Very well done on your weight loss. I know what you mean by being slightly disappointed after you'd been so good during the week but it will all balance out; seemingly it just takes time for our hard work to reflect totally on the scales.
