Green and Blue Swirls card

Hi everyone, I have another card to show you today.
I seem to be on a roll today as I have another
 half made too. 
I am loving blue and green just now, reminds me of
the sea I think. Using my favourite embossing folder
 again too.
 I managed to add a little pink and a few  knot 
stitches also. This means it qualifies for 'Less is More'
(Use three colours or shades of the same colour). 

Hope there is enough white space !!!
 Also as I added some stitches I am entering it into
 the 'Virginia's View Challenge' (stitching) too.I like the
 tiny bit of embossing on the sentiment too, must do that 
I used Distress inks I sponged onto an embossing
 folder. Then I spritzed it with water before running
it through the embossing machine.
 I stitched a few knots in the circles on the embossing
 for detail.

  2. I like what you did on your card, Viv! I have used the same embossing folder, but went a completely different path. Always love to see all the possibilities the same tool offers to different crafters :)
