excess ink with a tissue. I also used a bit of Early Espresso ink on the piece of Pool Party paper to show the detail of the houndstooth embossing folder. I have been using that embossing folder alot, it reminds me of fall! Love it! I used the stamp set French Foliage, I really like the look of the leaves on this set. Some other little details are the tiny tags on the crochet trim ribbon. The little tags are from the Jewlry tag punch, stamped with the Tiny Tags stamp set. This is the first time I used the crochet trim ribbon, and I really like it. I also finally opened up my Vintage Trinkets pack and used the tiny safty pin. Lots of new stuff going on with this card. I hope you liked it! Thanks for stopping by!
