Speckles and flourishes

Here's another new Hero Arts clear set of stamps called Speckled Ornaments. I loved what Jenn did for the blog hop stamping it in brown on pink for the top of a bag of candy hearts. I added Old Letter Writing to the background, and used the fleur-de-lis and the heart from this new set. My brown background is a piece of self-stick velvet paper run through the Victoria Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Supplies: CL401 Speckled Ornaments (fleurs-de-lis and heart), S4878 Old Letter Writing, CL173 SparkleClear Simple Messages, Palette Burnt Umber Ink, pink cardstock, self-stck brown velvet paper, embossed with Victoria cuttlebug folder, pink dotted swiss ribbon, pale pink pearls
