Papertrey Ink February 2017 Blog Hop

Today is Papertrey Ink's February 2017 Blog Hop. The laurel and sentiment are from the Make It Market: Lovely Laurels mini kit heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I also sprinkled embossing powder across the background and on the edges. And two edges of the card base are inked with Raspberry Fizz.

 I started with Vintage Cream cardstock as the card base and blended Saffron Spice ink across it (spritzed with water). I wound up covering most of it with the focal image, but I love the effect.

What is barely visible (just enough to break the starkness of the solid cardstock) is the bow from Lovely Laurels stamped randomly with Fine Linen.

And because Simon Says Anything Goes, it's there as well : D.
