Well today is Less is More Day and I've spent ages fiddling, but couldn't get anything I was happy with until I revisted their challenge and read it properly and discovered that I could use white as well as a single colour in varying shades. You can't believe the mess I've made trying to make a totally green card! Finally I came up with this and it's showcased our lovely vintage wallpaper embossing folder. I embossed some pear pizzazz dsp from the in colour stack and then sponged with dauber to highlight the embossed pattern in always artichoke. I've used the reverse of the dsp to stamp in different green shades one of the flowers from Ornate Flowers stamp set and used the decorative label punch to frame it.
For the scallop trim border to fit just perfectly around your centre strip you need to cut your background cardstock 1/2 inch wider than the decorative strip. This gives you a lace effect along the edges and some structure and strength if you use dsp for the decorative centre.
Ruffled pear pizzazz seam binding and a triple bow just add a bit of luxury along with those elegantly useful pearls. The sentiment is from Just Believe a gorgeous stamp set that I defy you not to love. You can place a customer order for any of these products with your local demonstrator or me at any time.

I also promised some pics from our day at the Sincerely Yours Show last Sunday. It was such a successful day and great to see so many Stampin' Up! fans. This is the team from left to righ Emma, Me, Mandy and Bridgette. You can visit their blogs via my sidebar.
It's a lovely sunny day here at the moment so I'm off to enjoy it with a family bbq while it lasts. Have fun all.
