The softness of the card background is what inspired the Serendipity quote. The background was sponged and lightly brayered and the stamped images were stamped with permanent black ink. The flower images were stamped, embossed, pop dotted for dimension and water colored. The sheer organdy ribbon holds a pearl hat pin. And of course my love of he glass rhinestones for that added touch of elegance.Now the inside of the card was in fact stitched :) I didn't stitch the outside because it already looked nice the way it was. The image on the inside was stamped and embossed and sponged to compliment the front of the card. The stamps were from "Stampin' Up"
