Vase with Roses

To make this card I embossed the gray paper using the Craft's Too embossing folder #EF3045.  I stamped the Rose Vase #786 using Stormy Gray Shades Dye ink on Stardream paper and then cut it out.  I cut a slit in the top of the vase to insert the roses.  The string pearls on the oval portion of the embossing folder and the top of the vase are from Kaiser Craft.  I used a silver border sticker on the outside of the frame.  This piece was then layered to a piece of lavender paper and put on an A2 white card.  All products are from, available either on-line at their web site or at their retail store in Fowlerville, MI.
