"Manhattan Flower" meets "Elements of Style"

When at first I saw the Manhattan Flower embossing folder in the Stampin' Up book, I didn't even give it a second glance.  I thought "Why would I need that embossing folder?".  Then, one day, while skimming the book again (drooling and creating a new wish list), ideas started flowing, and I just HAD to have THAT folder! 
Here's one of the first cards I have made, using this folder!  After embossing it on Kraft cardstock, I gently glided the raised flowers over the Early Espresso ink pad, to give the design more definition.  Then, I took the swirly stamp from "Elements of Style", and began stamping the empty spots around the flowers, as well as adding the sentiment "Life is a matter of moments".  I added ivory satin ribbon, then adhered the whole piece to a light seaside blue card base.  Finally, I added several pieces of bling under the sentiment.  I hope you like it!  ~Hoppy Crafting!
