Rhubarb and Grey

I am loving my Nestabilities. I haven't mastered the right combination for great results with the embossing yet but I'm enjoying them just the same. Currently I have the rectangle sets and the circle sets. Eventually I hope to have the squares and ovals too. The price is really reasonable when you consider the price of punches. And storage space isn't an issue with them like it is with the punches.

Ok, on to the card. I used a variety of papers from the BasicGrey Perhaps collection and the card base is Rhubarb from Paper Source. I sponged all of the BasicGrey papers edges with Ranger Distress ink in weathered wood. Then I added some hodgepodge hardware and ribbon and stamped the greeting from SU Sincere Salutations in Colorbox chalk maroon ink. The flowers are stamped with Colorbox chalk pink pastel. The flower stamp is from my "tester" set from Rubber Stamping Fun. This set is not yet available for purchase.

Thanks so much for stopping. Enjoy your day!
