Elegant Be Mine

Hello friends! I had a chance to play along with this week's CAS challenge at Splitcoast Stampers...this one was an easy one, I think...dry embossing. This past weekend I had a chance to go out to a Hobby Lobby...which is quite a trek from me from where I live, and frankly, I didn't even know that we had one in New Jersey. I purchased this embossing folder and I thought it would look lovely paired with some Zva Creative crystal flourishes:

Simple, simple...emboss the base, add a black satin ribbon and embellish with a buckle and then lay down those crystals. Oh, and I also added a wee sentiment from Verve, this one is from More than Love set.

Paper: White, Black
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black

  5. LOL I can remember moving to TN 10 years ago from N.J. and not liking Hobby Lobby at all and now I don't know how I live without them. LOL I love the black and white, so elegant and I have that embellishment and now I know what to do with it....thanks.

  7. I have no excuse for not going to HB... there is one about 3 blocks from my house and I love that embossing folder!! You do know that this CAS card still rings out "Andrea!", right?!
