Tailored and Elegant for Mother


My mother has been gone for several years, but I should find a mother to send this to.  This is a favorite image, by Endless Creations.  I used odds and ends of cs.  I embossed the CB Victoria folder.  It is very hard to see, but the black strip has embossed faux stitching, done with a CB border folder.  The scrollwork at the bottom is cut with a CB border die.  I am terrible at piercing, even with a metal template but I gave it a go!  ALso hard to see - I added glitter to the flowers for more sparkly elegance.  Also, the scroll work and the mat for the image are shimmery black cs.
