I do not often use contrasting colors for mats - what do you think? The image is a favorite Hampton Art daisy, and "Sister" is a Dazzle sticker by Hot Off the Press. I used two different embossing folders, some sheer ribbon and a Recollections gem in shades of teal. The coloring is Twinkling H20 (African Jade and Playful Peony). Classy Cards 'n Such has a lot of cardmaking supplies, including the Spellbinder Ovals, and many sets of H20 colors. The pale teal embossed layer is reminiscent of the inspiration at Classy Cards.
