Bella Rose Quilted Top Note

Well, this one turned out perfectly with what I had pictured in my head when I started. It took much longer than I thought it would, probably because my miniscule stamping area is the mother of all messes right now, I spent 5 minutes searching for my bone folder before I gave up, I have no idea where it is. On to the deets...

This card uses the quilting technique (with Bella Rose DSP), which I am now in LOVE with! I did that, then ran it through my Big Shot with the SU die, Top Note. That is layered over a Kiwi Kiss CS that was also run through my BS with the Texture Plate from SU called Damask (you can really see it IRL), edges punched with the Ticket Corner Punch. That is layered over the Riding Hood Red card base, which has been punched with the SU Eyelet Border Punch down one side. I used the Word Window Punch and layered behind that the word WISH. The flowers and bird are from SU Sizzlets, Birds&Blooms, the branch is Little Leaves, also exclusive to SU. The button (isn't it yummy?) is from SU Button Bouquet, which I covet highly and hoard religously! I think I like to look at them, but find it hard to make myself use one!

I am in love with this card, which is really more textured and beautiful in person. I can't get a decent shot right now, it's too dark, and I had a friend lead me to a lighting website and I will be working on that ASAP. But I was eager to post. I have had virtually no stamping time lately, and this was so welcome! I had fun stamping, and I need to make more time for it again. Hope you all like it! Let me know what you think.
