Card and Gift for Challenge #13

This card  is one of my favorite cards. I made it last year, but I decided to use it for this week's challenge.  I stamped the flower twice and colored both of them with my Copic Markers. I cut, clipped and curled the top flower and attached them together with my Glue Glider. Flower Soft was added to the center of the flower for extra texture and dimension. (I love that stuff)

Using Therm-O-Web Dimensionals, I added the flowers to the Fleur De Lis Pendant from Spellbinders which had been attached to a piece of DP cut with the Spellbinders Lable One Nesties. The sentiment was stamped using JustRite Birthday Wishes (without the border) and cut out with the Dahlia Nestie.

I ran a piece of May Art's silk ribbon on top of the Madeline K&Company Paper which is cut 5.5x5.5  and attached it to the same size of Neenah cream cardstock. It was finished off with a beautiful deep purple silk bow made with the Bow Easy.

I tried my hand at etching and fell in love with it.  I hope I am able to do some etching for  Christmas gifts this year.  I added dried flowers to the bottle for color.

Joan, I'm enjoying playing in your challenges so much! Love your card but Purple is definitely NOT my color! I do plan to try it though...I've never tried etching...hmm maybe something new in my future.
