You'll notice that I changed the orientation of the card just bit. I reversed the main image from the right more to the left & center.
I also put my narrow accent piece near the bottom behind my focal point, mainly because there really isn't a good way to shorten the focal point without ruining the look that I was going for.
Colors used were Bravo Burgandy, Very Vanilla, Basic Black & Crumb Cake.
The faux stitching along the top is done with a paper piercer, a white gel pen gone over with an extra-fine tip black Sharpie. The pearl flowers are made with a XL glue dot on the back of a large half pearl & the ribbon is scrunched & adhered to the glue dot. (Sometimes you have to put a 2nd glue dot before you make it all the way around.) Then use another glue dot to adhere it to your card. The sentiment is from one of this year's Sale-A-Bration sets & is punched out with the Postage Stamp punch from Stampin' Up! & edged in Crumb Cake. The main image was a newspaper print stamp inked with basic black & then cut out with Stampin' Up!'s Dressed Up Framelit, then edged with Crumb Cake. Then I cut a 2nd image cut in Basic Black & adhered the newsprint die cut over the black with it being just a little off-set to create the "shadow" image. The Very Vanilla rectangle and the sentiment piece were stamped with the Very Vintage wheel in Crumb Cake. Hope you've enjoyed my entry to FMS 98.
