Sweet 16 - FMS 171

This is a card which I need for the weekend, and I thought the FMS sketch this week would do the job.
Two happy accidents, I think, on this card :-)  I used my NBUS Sheena Douglas emboss folder to emboss the pink card.  It needed two passes, and as I was putting the card back in the folder, I dropped the folder and the card!  When I embossed - yep, you guessed it - I got it the wrong way round, so the top of the card is deboss, and the bottom emboss.  But, you know what, I think I like it.  And the second happy accident?
I stamped the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss onto a piece of card - then lost it!  Do you think I could find it - how does that happen?!  So I stamped again with a lighter purple ink, and I think it works better as it does not detract from the image.  I, found the first sentiment stuck to the bottom of the sewing machine when I went to put it away!

Anyway, if you are still with me after all that rambling, here is the card and sketch:
Thanks for looking.

  1. Ha ha! Gorgeous card and I am all for serendipity.
    I wouldn't have noticed the embossing if you hadn't mentioned it, but looking at it again, I think it's terrific. It's like ombre embossing. You've created a new style :-)
