Another Sweet Essentials Card

Using the Faux Suede Technique
This is another card using some similar colors and the same DSP as the previous posted card.  I am going to show you how you can use some of the same papers and stamp sets as the last card to create a different look with different embellishments. 
I used Crumb Cake paper (#120953) as the card background, on the back of the rectangle strip, and on the flower that was punched.  I used the Calypso Coral (#126983) ink to sponge the Tea Lace Paper Doily (#129399) and to stamp the words in the top right of the card.  I used 'so kind of you' from the Sweet Essentials stamp set (#C126457, W132085).  I then added pearls jewels (#119247) to the corner of the card

To create the rest of the card I used the Epic Day This and That DSP (#130814) and adhered it to the crumb cake strip.  When creating the flower, I used the Blossom Punch (#125603) and the technique called Faux Suede.  You punch the flower out of the cardstock and then carefully pull it apart beginning at the edges to create two separate flowers that have the look of suede or a kind of worn look on one side.  This textured side of the flowers is the side that is shown on the card.  In the middle of the flower, I added a Vintage Faceted Button (#127555) with Linen Thread (#104199) tied in the middle of the button.
