Hi y'all,
 the Card for today was the first commissioned card I have done, a guy that works at my bank asked me to make him a card for Mother's day, this is what I came up with. I used a dark lavender card base and white layers, the first layer was plain and I did a bottom border with  Martha Stewart's deco shell border punch, the second layer was embossed with the Cuttlebug and the damask embossing folder. I used a dark purple ribbon and a Spellbinders Fancy tag for the sentiment. The sentiment was first printed out on the computer and then I used the Spellbinders die to cut it out. The image is from Stampin Up's "Blossoms Abound" stamp set and it is a two step stamp so I was able to get two colors in the flower to make it look more dimensional. I also embossed it with clear embossing powder and I added the powder several times while it was wet to get a more 3d look (I don't yet own UTEE) I also included some extras, I made an envelope using two different purple papers and some white paper punched with the MS Deco Shell border punch
I also created a small gift bag in the shape of a purse using the same papers and punch. The pattern for the purse came from www.myscrapchick.com, it is in her 30 Boxes and More Collection, I used Sure Cuts A Lot 2 software with my Cricut to make it. I included some rhinestones for bling and a sheer silver ribbon as the handle, He was very pleased with the whole package.

Tammy, this is so stunning, I wished you had made it for my mom! I just love the idea of the embossed white layered on the white CS, never thought to try that and it is so elegant. The purse and envie were great bonuses!
