You're so Fun & Welcome New Friends

Hello and happy Friday my friends.

Have you ever been late to a party? Well I feel like I have been with this card technique. The background of this card is a COFFEE FILTER. Where have I been living? Under a rock?
I was wandering through the Sparkle & Sprinkle website (don't ya just love browsing from your seat and not your feet?)...anyway, I found this tutorial on how to use a coffee filter and heat embossing for your background and of course I had to try it out.
I am in LOVE!!!
How many times have you ruined a background and thrown your card stock away? (You have never done that...well aren't you lucky, because I have done it a lot)! By using the coffee filter technique, if you screw it up, just throw the very cheap coffee filter away...SWEET!

Plus..I am totally pleased how it turned out on my first try.
I used Penny Black stamps: Friendship & Longing,
After stamping the coffee filter with the swirly flowers, I heat embossed with Sparkly Clear powder (you can just see a bit of the sparkle on the flower above the lace).

I am starting a new feature here on Friday's. 
I would like to Welcome all new Followers of this blog. I actually saw this done on a fellow card makers blog and it just made me feel special (thank you Darnell for this idea!). I want you to feel special also and know that I appreciate you taking the time to read and follow my blog postings.
Welcome to my little corner of the world and I am so happy that you have decided to be a part of it:
