Thanks, Selma!! Pink and Frilly

I was just dying to try this card. I have several punch around the page punches and use them quite often but I had gotten one of the deep edge ones (Wild Flowers) and didn't know the measurements for using it around the page. My Sis gave me this punch back in the summer and there were no instructions.  I was pouring over Selma's Stamping Corner, one of my favorite places, and she had a tutorial showing the measurements and how easy it was. Thanks, Selma!!! I am a happy girl. So, then I just had to make a card for Joan's Gardens challenge#1. This week, the challenge is to make a card or tag using some kind of hearts and use white with  pink or red. Also, do some kind of embossing. I did dry embossing with my favorite Cuttlebug folder, Textile.
I punched a few very small flowers with the Martha Stewart hydrangea punch and added gemstones to the centers. My heart punch is the Martha Stewart Lace Scallop Heart. The rest of my recipe is at the bottom of the post.

My card is also for the Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers and this week it is Wendy aka Wendybell. I took many liberties case-ing her card but I think there is a bit of a resemblance. Eek!
Her card is shown here. Well, they are both square. :-)

Also entering the challenge at Simon Says Stamp-New Something (My Wild Flower punch around the page is one I've had a while but never used until this card).

Benzi this is a gorgeous card. I am so happy I could help you with the measurements for using that type punch. I don't have that MS punch and think I need to get it. Thank you for joining us this week in our challenge at Joan's Gardens.
