Hi there, 

Today I'd like to share my last December 2016 reveal card. I chose to work with the Rustic Flower Set 816.

To begin with, I stamped the jug of flowers in Versamark on Kraft cardstock and then I heat embossed with Sienna. The image was colored  with Copics.

This was then die cut using the Spellbinders Style Nouille Decorative Element, which was sponged with Wild Honey Distress ink before removing the die. I then placed a piece of Super Adhesive Sheet in the center of the reddish purple textured cardstock and removed the backing, the die cut image was centered on the adhesive and then Mystical Mauve was applied to the remaining sticky areas.

I used the Nuvo Fine Tip Glue Pen to add some of the Mystical Mauve Glitter to the purple flowers in the jug.

This tied the jug in nicely with the sparkly border.

The sentiment was stamped in Versamark on Kraft cardstock and then heat embossed with Mulberry, one of the detailed Tuscany colors. This was then die cut with Spellbinders Framed Tags One and was attached with Foam Squares, with one behind the hole which was then sprinkled with the Mystical Mauve Glitter.

I made up a flower from using various Prima flower parts, embossing a little Sienna powder to the larger petals. This was attached to the card front with a copper brad in the center.
Hope you've enjoyed my share today.

Big hugs,
