Sweet White Bella

Ok...I'm breaking my Christmas card tradition....but I have a new stamp it's like an obligation to use it :)

I checked out the Featured Stamper's ebethneu , who has wonderful style. I was looking for something to case and loved this card, it uses a different set, but I knew that my new set could make it happen in a similar way. I liked the embossing and the simplicity of the layout.

Changes: Set, sentiment, ribbon, use of HodgePodge Hardware, Sponging, added different layers

Kept: Basic color palette and layout and style of card.

I embossed the larger Bella flower on the Bella DSP and embossed with Winter White. I also embossed the sentiment too. I sponged the edges well and added some pretty piercing.

I overstamped the smaller flower on the Kiwi Kiss layer and used a different type of HodgePodge Hardware in a different way.

Gorgeous stamp set don't you think?
