I have yet to try this technique and you know as soon as I'm done here, I'm off to try that! The embossing reminds me of a vintage stamped tin door on an old kitchen cabinet. I just LOVE it!! Keeping fingers crossed. The tulip is perfect. I'm seeing tons of them around here already. :)
Spring is definitely in the air.

I never have inked an embossing folder, but now I am going to remember to do it. This card is just what I like, Sue--elegant & beautiful--love the double frame & your colors!

It is so classy, Sue...and I think it comes very close to "shabby chic," doesn't it? Beautiful.
