I embossed white card stock in a folder by Crafts Too called Daisy & Swirl - the folder was inked with Memento New Sprout and after embossing, I swiped the very pale green with Memento Angel Pink. To finish the card, I added a mounted panel of chevron stripes by Annabelle Stamps and then embellished with a flower from Stampin Up set Fifth Avenue. This was coloured with Inktense Pencils. My grand-daughter's card was lovely too - Teal blue and green, with a more striking sentiment added above the strip - I wish I had taken a photo of it to include with mine.
