forever {fabulous}

Hi there bloggie friends.  Today's post is a little nostalgic for me - the fabulous duo of 2S4Y - Laura Davis and Kazan Clark - have announced that this week's post will be the final post at 2Sketches 4 You, as they will be pursuing new opportunities both in and out of the craft world.  It's a very exciting time for the both of them.  And very well deserved, because I just think these 2 ladies are so awesome!  They gave me my first opportunity to be on a design team, and for that, I will be forever grateful!  I encourage you guys to check out the site and play in this final challenge one last time.
I created this card using the Framed Tulips embossing folder and that pretty bloom is from the Fun Flowers Bigz L die.  I've always been fond of the yellow/brown combo {in SU! terms, that would be So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, and Early Espresso}, and it's been on my brain lately because of this charming Cafe that I discovered just recently by my house called Yellow Vase.  It's in such a quaint and charming little spot, I'll have to take pictures of it the next time I go!  Here's one last look of the card:
What do you think?  I love how the embossing folder creates such a pretty frame - it's a quick and easy way to dress up a card, that's for sure!  Hope you like it.  Here are the deets:
{Forever Fabulous}
*Stamp Set: Fabulous Phrases
*Cardstock: Early Espresso, Dafodil Delight, Whisper White, Sweet Stitches DSP
*Inks: Early Espresso
*Accessories: Fun Flower Bigz L die, Framed Tulips embossing folder, Daffodil Delight 1/8" ribbon, dotted scallop border punch, corner rounder, Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack, Basic Pearls
Now, don't forget to hop on over to 2S4Y and take a peek at the challenges.  Hope you'll play along on this final farewell sketch!  Have a great day!

This is such a gorgeous card! I love the color combo you used here with the embossing folder. I just can't wait to get that die and play around with it. You used it so well here. Great job!
