This card was made with three freebies - the embossing folder (which I love!), a sentiment and a silhouette. My color choice was based on the color scheme over at Color Throwdown.
I actually kept my design mostly white, with black stamped details and adding color with theblue panel and the punched flowers, which were covered with blue mist and yellow pearls and gelato. I stamped everything before I embossed, making the embossed leaves a frame around the image.

 This card is for:
Color Throwdown - #409 Color Challenge
Just Add Ink – #328 Just add P (pearls, petals)
4 Crafty Chicks - #315 Birthday
Seize The Birthday - Birthday + Frames  (embossed frame)

Oh! Before seeing this card I didn't realized how beautiful is this silouette!!
I have it, too... is part of the fairy stamps that come with a magazine that you sent me two years ago! :D Thank you very much again for the gift and now for this amazing inspiration! The silouette looks very clear on white!
I pinned it
Love this elegant card, and the embossed frame is really gorgous. Thanks for the trick to embossing after stamping, it's a clever idea!

Oh my... this is awesome! You incorporated the colors so naturally with the white-- only you can make something non-monochromatic look monochromatic! (That's meant to be a compliment on your eye for aesthetcs!) And all freebies? Win-win-win! I liked this challenge, didn't you?

Wow, you have some amazing freebies there, Pia! I am assuming these came in a magazine? You are so lucky! The magazines are so expensive here - they are not in my budget. Your card is absolutely gorgeous and I especially love the embossing folder!

KimB said...

I love all the detail you got in your white layers Pia - it adds so much depth and makes a wonderful contrast to the that lovely detailed stamped image. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.
