Good Morning all. Hope you had a good weekend. I did this card last week but only managed to get a decent photo this morning. I have done this parchment design before but I have changed the colouring and the little fancy cutting corners on this one. Parchment was coloured with Pergamano pencils and then embossed. Then I used a cutting tool to cut out all the plain sections. Edged with a pattern and then cut out with scissors.Whew that's hard on the hands. Plain green parchment behind also edged the same way. Card base is Bazzill cardstock, can't remeber the colour and DP is K & Co. Pearls are from the pretties kit from SU and the little pink and green brads are from Hot off the Press.
As always I am delighted to receive any of your comments. I do appreciate you taking the time to do this. Thank you

Hi Marion,

This is lovely. I love the parchment detail.

Thanks for popping by .... the answer to your question is yes ... I rolled the Fimo thinly and then cut out my buttons with Icing cutter shapes.
