MFP Blog Hop Tweet Blessings DAY ONE

Here comes another Mark's Finest Papers Blog Hop!!  Today features the newly released stamp set "Tweet Blessings" and my rendition of it is below:

I used Provo Craft's "Vintage" corner die, Spellbinder's "Fancy Tags" die and a Cuttlebug embossing folder "Branches" for dimension.
"Tuxedo Black" dye ink by Memento and
"Really Rust" dye ink by Stampin' Up! for colors.
A few rhinestone gems for bling.

Wow, what an incredibly elegant card. The restraint of color is such perfect off-set for all the flourish interest. Zowiies, I gotta come back and see more of your art when I'm done with this Hop. I just want to keep staring at your card, it's so perfectly perfect.......and normally I'm not a fan of flourishes.
