Sanded Core'dination by Judy Jackson

This is a card that the different aspects of the finished product evolved as I went along. That is what happens to me most often when I stamp. I rarely can see the finished prodecut in my mind first -- however, it does happen from time to time, but not this time!
First I chose the paper to emboss and then sand. Then I chose the embossing folder. Now I wanted flowers that would match or blend with the type of flowers on the embossing folder. Done -- now how shall I treat the flowers as just plain stamping didn't appeal to me -- ahh I will use the Kiss With a Twist technique. Cool! It gave the flowers a very soft look. Stamps are from Stampin' Up and Close to My Heart -- both are retired sets.
Add some layers, distress some edges but not all, add some sponging, add some home made glimmer spray, add some ribbon, add a saying on a tag for the final embellishment -- and I am done!
I hope flowers are blooming for you today!

This is such an elegant card, Judy!!! The colors are fabulous and the layout is wonderful. Card design is my weakness, so I'm always looking for ideas....I just found one! Beautiful work.
