Blue shabby rhinestone card (The Greeting Farm image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

This card is using a gorgeous image from The Greeting Farm, I have had her forever but still love this rubber stamp. For this card I used an embossing folder, something I don't actually get out and use very much although I love how everyone else seems to create so beautifully with them. Once I'd embossed the teal paper I lightly went over it with sandpaper so you can see the details better. 

I used some love heart stamps, snowflake die cuts and some Flourish with a Bling - Elise silver flourish, Elise white flower and silver rhinestones. Flourish with a Bling is selling all their products for $2 each this month, that's more than half off most products!! I hope you'll check out our website as we have our own unique products and we post worldwide.
