I have wanted to use this stamp for some time, but didn’t want it to be too plain by just stamping in black. I was pleased with the effect of the white embossing powder and it really popped after sponging on SU Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip. Did you notice no DP and no Nesties on this card? I used a script stamp for the background and added a little bit of sponging for depth and kept all the panels rectangular. I almost decided no ribbon but at the last minute I gave in to that ribbon weakness.
Nothing complicated here, I tried to keep the layers and lines very simple. The last embellishment (I had to think on this a little bit) was a large Prima secured with a large filigree brad with a white pearl (I colored the pearl with Copic E33).
