Well, it has been AGES since I played along with a challenge on the Splendid Stamping blog! Their challenge from last Friday looked like a fun one, so I pitched in! The challenge is to use 2 or 3 different textures on your card - could be embossing, glossy accents, Flower Soft, etc.
Here is mine:
I used an adorable Cheeky Cherry stamp called Cheeky Mate - she is a ball of hotness! LOL
The next layer is a Basic Black piece, embossed with my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder, and matted with a vanilla piece. I added another small strip of vanilla using the same edge punch, wrapped some Twill Tape around that base layer, and added 3 vintage brads to the side with my mat pack and paper piercer.
My sentiment is made from one of those "label thingies" - clearly I don't remember what it's called, but I bought it at Michael's. It's great for customizing what you want to say.
Here is another view so you can see the SHINE:
