Everything Eleanor

                Everything Eleanor

Here's a different kind of post - a card I'm not very pleased with! Ever have those? Well, this is one of them!
I liked the idea but not the embossing... wish it had a bit of ribbon or something. So I'll be right back with an updated version that's more to my liking. (scroll down)

Here's the stamp set - lots of beautiful elements!

And here it is! I have to tell you this card was a struggle for me!  It took me a while to decide just how I would introduce the ribbon. I decided on little "knot centers"...

I used the new Delicate Designs Folder and embossed diagonally across the card after stamping the swirly-do. Adds a lacy feel, doesn't it?

3/8" Stitched Satin ribbon in Raspberry Ripple became the flower centers, along with a pearl or two.

Stamped with Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple and Primrose Petals.

Whew! I'm happier now!

LOL! Before I saw your new rendition, I was going to recommend that same ribbon for leaves!! Love the delicate designs folder on the diagonal. Really nice!

Your Everything Eleanor designs are just exquisite! This is one of the new stamp sets I've been excited about and was thrilled to see how you paired these images with the new Delicate Designs embossing folder! Couldn't be lovlier!!

This is such a beautiful card. Your detail is amzing! I am not sure I would ever have the patience to cut out all the flowers.
