Cuttlebug Challenge - 14

The Cuttlebug challenge this week is to use your favourite folder. Hah!! Just how many folders can one get on one card? My favourite folder changes from card to card, depending
on what I am doing. I do tend to use Textile more than others, but I love Swiss dots and Swirls, and ....................
Well anyway with the card I decided to make D'vine Swirls is my favourite to use. I inked over the swirls to give them more definition and distressed the edges. I used this sketch
as it covered the join in the embossing as the card is wider than the folder. I used the Hero Arts quote stamp as the center piece and Basic Grey flourish stamp from the Boxer set
around the edges.

Materials
Basic cardstock - Core-dinations
Cuttlebug + D'vine Swirls folder
Stamps - Hero Arts quotes and Basic Grey Boxer
Inks - Ancient Page - chocolate & Brilliance Moonlight white
Brads, spacer, ribbon and flowers from stash

Beautiful card Rica!! Divine Swirls is my favourite folder. I love the colours in this card. Also, is the second photo the back of the card, or the envelope? If it is the back of the card...I've never seen anyone decorate the back before...what a great idea!!!
Peace & love
