Godelieve *Day 4*

Up next is this pretty little number by Godelieve:
The first thing that caught my attention on this card was Godelieve's bold black stamping against that pretty blue background. Next, I can't get enough of her embellishments. Aren't the ribbon, ruffle, and button just perfect?! Finally, the rounded corners at the top of the card really finish off this creation.
Here is my take:

This card is another that began entirely as white cardstock. I began by distressing the background using Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress ink. The flower image (Hero Arts) was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I also added stickles to the flower petals after stamping. The green panel was stamped with the grid background (Hero Arts) using VersaMark ink. I heat embossed this with clear embossing powder on white cardstock. Next, I applied Crushed Olive Distress ink over the graph background.

Thanks for stopping by! HUGS!
