Swiss Dots

I finally got the Swiss Dots embossing folder for my Cuttlebug I had wanted for a while. I embossed my magenta cardstock and vellum for this card. I used the Tres Chic text background stamp from StampinUp with Colorbox white pigment ink. The flower stamp is "repurposed" which simply means I had stamped it previously for something else and decided to use it on this card instead. I don't know who makes this stamp. I do know I colored it with watercolor crayons and blending pen.
Although you can't see it in this picture, my friend Sarah recently sent me a clear Spica pen which I used over the light purple petals in the flower. It really does give them a nice glimmer.
