Lily Pad Cards ~ Simon Says Stamps Texture Challenge

Here is the card I made:

and a close-up:

I made this card for a dear friend of ours!!...She is one of those women that you NEVER see without make-up...and she LOVES to rock her blue eye shadow!!

The card base is from Hero Arts...I ran a piece of Core'dinations cardstock through my die cut machine with an embossing folder...I sanded it so that the blue from underneath showed through...I layered that on top of another piece of the Core'dinations with the blue side facing up...I used a Fiskar's border punch to punch the flowers...I attached the flower border onto the blue cardstock and then sprayed it with Leather Glimmer mist...

The hearts in the corners is a corner punch...I have used it so much that it is actually broken...I just can't throw it away!!...I just have to carefully place the cardstock in it so that I can still use it!!

The oval doily shape is something that I bought...I can't remember who makes it...I'm pretty sure I purchased it at Simon Says Stamps...I used Faded Jeans and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks for the color on it and stamps "Hugs" with Versa Mark Ink and embossed it with white embossing powder...the sentiment is from Hero Arts...

The ribbon, bling and straight pins are from my stash!

Have a great night!!
