Flourishes, Beauty of a Fold

This pretty center fold card is for the challenge on Flourishes
I used a Martha Stewart punch for the edges and the 5x5" square, Cheery Lynn Designs stacked doily, scalloped circle and fern dies.  I stamped and gold embossed this all time favorite image of the doves in gold on Poison Ivory paper and sponged tea dye distressed ink around all pieces.  The sentiment is from the same set and I gold embossed it also.    Be sure to stop over at Flourishes and check out the gorgeous creations!!!!  I'm also entering this in the
Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge to use an old stamp, I don't think I had ever used this smaller version of this set. Be sure to check out the DT cards on SSIC also, some beautiful inspiration there.  I just love the elegance of this set and it's still available!!! Hop over to Flourishes to get it before you finish your Christmas cards this year.
