Monochromatic Secret Garden

While I had my Secret Garden set and framelits out the other day, I made another card - this time for the sketch/birthday challenge at Friday Mashup and the monochromatic challenge at SUO Challenges.

I've been really busy at work as it's budget time, so I'm squeezing this post in while I have my morning coffee before heading in to do another long day crunching numbers.

I white-embossed various flowers onto the Pool Party script DSP from the paper stacks, then cut them out with the framelits.  They were mounted onto Whisper White using dimensionals, which itself was mounted onto Whisper White using dimensionals.

The background is more script DSP, this time Island Indigo.  The little soda pop top was stamped using Collage Curios and coated in Crystal Effects and left to dry.  When it was dry, I stuck a tiny little rhinestone on it.

I don't know whether it's because my Crystal Effects is old (circa 2007) but my wee embellishment looks a bit cloudy.  Next time I might try clear embossing several layers to see if that looks clearer.

Thanks for looking.
