Today's featured set is called Columns &  Topiaries.  I used both sizes of the columns included in the set to create my background on my card base.  I stamped the columns in Versamark ink and then heat embossed them with clear embossing powder.  Next, I die cut my label shape from the card base and backed it with some vanilla colored card stock.  I die cut a smaller label shape, sponged the edges and heat embossed my sentiment.  I adhered some thin satin ribbon and some paper flowers.  I popped the whole thing up in the center of the negative space and rounded two corners of my card base.
Thanks for stopping by!  Don't forget to head on over to Sue's blog to see what she has in store for you.
