Now for my card today....


This card was so much fun to create! I played around with the Ranger Studio 490 Embossing Paste in Black to create a tone-on-tone background that turned out really, really gorgeous. I also used our Poinsettia Greetings and some Catherine Pooler Inks to watercolor the poinsettia. And, as I felt I needed an element to pull it all together, I decided to play with our Mermaid Bubbles! These are soooo fun and perfect to add on to every project!

Thank you to all the wonderful sponsors!

Will have to use your idea for the tone on tone background! It is perfect for the card you created! And I’m going to have to have some of 5he mermaid bubbles too as the added a perfect finishing touch!
