I side folded a white card and dry embossed with Cuttlebug
"Diamonds in the Rough" embossing folder.
Stamped the quote (Quietfire Design) with Versafine "Black Onyx") on a separate piece of white cardstock and hand cut in a wonky diamond shape. Sponged a bit of Distress "Barn Door" around the edges. Cut a piece of lace ribbon the length I needed and colored with Distress stains "Barn Door", dried and adhered to back of wonky rectangle with Sookwang tape. Adhered to card front. Adhered the small white half pearls in each corner.
Adhered my quilled elements. PS. the black stamen in the flower are made from 4 ply waxed linen thread, knotted at one end. Then added Liquid Pearls "White Opal" on all the faux crossed stitched areas.
