Craft Hoarders Anonymous Hop - Just a Note Card

Hello Friends,
Welcome to the September Craft Hoarders Anonymous Hop! You should be coming to my blog from Karen's Blog. After visiting me, hop over to Christy's Blog next. To start at the beginning of the hop, and for the full list of Bloggers, go to Gloria's Blog.

To create this card I started by die cutting the card base using Noble Dies - Classic Adorned Design from Desert Storm cardstock. The next layers were die cut and embossed using Noble Dies - Ornate Pierced Rectangles and Noble Dies - Lavish Accented Design. I used designer paper, natural white and kraft cardstock. I adhered the layers using foam squares to add dimension. The sentiment was die cut with Expressions Dies - Just a Note from black cardstock.
The flowers and leaves were die cut using Finishing Touches - Delicate FrondsFinishing Touches - Camelia - Complete Petals from designer paper. I shaped the flowers and added some color with distress inks and gesso.
