Embellish Color Trends and Misting

A birthday card for a dear friend:


Embellish's fab colors include a green turquoise, gray, brown and cream (or maybe white). I created my own turquoise green Glimmer Mist by combining Turquoise Blue and some English Ivy and then used it to "dye" my bloomer ribbon as well as mist the card panel. The sentiment, stamped in brown ink, is from Paper Smooches "Word Up." The pins are Maya Road (Vintage Black Pearl) and Making Memories (clear head).

You can tell I misted the interior, as well, which made it too pretty to write in! ;) I misted the envelope and still have lots of leftover mist!



Thanks so much for stopping by! We appreciate every one of your comments!

[Edited to add:] This card was included in Embellish's What's Hot (kind of like an honorable mention)!! I'm so ecstatic!!


I'm that last thumbnail!! Yippee!!
