Embossing on Mulberry Paper

I made this birthday card for a young lady I know who is having a birthday next week. I stamped my script on mulberry paper and then embossed it in white. I don't know why this never occurred to me before, possibly because I thought the mulberry paper was too fragile. Anyway, it worked just fine and the effect is quite nice. I then wet the edges and tore them.


My stamping on this card was probably inspired by Jacqueline. It seems like something she would create. I wonder whether she'll agree:)
Of course my little girl is by Paperbag Studios as is the butterfly. The flowers are by Paper Inspirations. Script by Hero Arts. Birds by Studio G.
