This is one of those cards that randomly evolved. I found the embossed frame in my stash and really didn't want to throw it away so I built the card around it! Crazy!
The background, focal image, and sentiment are from the stamp set, My Friend. Once I stamped the background I wanted some texture so I embossed it with the Elegant Lines embossing folder. I had the Lattice also sitting in my stash so that went on next. After I stamped and framed the main image, I decided it needed more Blushing Bride so I added the punched flowers but I don't know if you have noticed - those little flowers always seem to need a pearl in the center! I always go for the odd number, so I added a pearl to one of the stamped flowers too. When I stepped back and looked at the card, I realized it could use some more Blushing Bride - thus the ribbon. Hmm. I debated over adding the sentiment. I wanted a sentiment, but where to put it?? It seemed to fit best under the frame. And, as an afterthought, I included 2 more pearls - on the lattice this time. I am not sure they were necessary but I love those Basic Pearls, so they stayed!
