I used a number of Waltzingmouse Stamps on this card: the circle, the sentiment, and the background leaves. The maroon DP is actually digital paper from WMS, too. To get the closely nested scalloped squares, I first die cut the green one with the largest die in the Classic Scalloped Squares Small set of Nestabilities. Then, using an Exacto knife, I cut around the outside of the die on the digi paper to get a slightly larger border. I created the brad button with an I-top brad maker and set it on a die cut embellishment from the Cuttlebug Harlequin set. The tone-on-tone background was stamped with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and Adirondack Cranberry Ink was used for the sentiment.
I adore Swarovski rhinestones. They have a reflective quality that is unmatched in embellishments. They are a bit pricey, and I have only found them at Michael's. When I have a 40 or 50% off coupon, this is more than likely what I use it for. It's hard to catch the effect on camera, though.
