Gypsy Romance


I was playing with some new goodies to make this card. It was inspired by the Basic Grey background paper - a creamy off-white with swirls of celery and olive green. To play up the swirl theme I embossed the next layer with my cuttlebug using the d'vine swirl folder and mounted that on a layer of old olive.
The main image is embossed with gold ep (even though it doesn't show up as "gold" in the pic) - it is from my new Rhonna Farrer stamp set called "Gypsy" - I used this for the card posted yesterday or the day before... I just love this set becuase it has such a cool Rock-n-Roll look to it. I mounted this image on a mega sized scallop circle punch which I punched smaller holes in with my crop-a-dile.
I added lots of brass brads and some olive green striped ribbon and gold star embossed organdy ribbon.
Overall dimensions are 5 x 5.

This is such a pretty card-- I do not have a cropadile, and would like to get one. I also love that mega scallop punch-- pretty, pretty!

I don't know why I'm just checking out your blog I drool daily over your posted photos on SCS! LOL. I love the swirls and the rock n roll look of these stamps too! I recently bought some Rhonda Farrar flourish stamps now I need to check these out!
