TSG Embossed Topiary

Here's a card I made using a couple of my sets from There She Goes. The pretty topiary image (that I LOVE!) is from the Welcome Home set and the sentiment is from Butterfly Happiness.



The cool layout was created by Amy Rysavy (atsdtc20) and you can see the sketch HERE. The topiary panel is up on Dimensionals. I left the Curved Mega Rectangle Die in place and sponged Pale Plum all around the image to get the border.

Oh Denise - your sponging effect is so smooth, I could swear it was accomplished with an air gun. I adore your topiaries, color choices and layout. You get an A+ my dear.

I had a blast Saturday night, and as you know, didn't want to leave. We've got to get together again. It was so wonderful to finally meet you and I adore Silke as well, she kept me in stitches. {{{hugs}}}
