Hi Bloggers.

An uber quick post today. I had to make this card really quickly yesterday as I had forgotten that I hadn't written a post or made a card and I had promised to take Nathan to the cinema!

Anyhow, here's the card -

This is an actual card. Card blank and frame made from Sue Wilson's Classic Adorned Rectangles Die Set out of Coconut White Card.

Paper is from Phill Martin's Chic Flora 8 x 8 Paper Pad - I used just one piece. Patterned side for inside frame, plain for leaves and verse inside card.

Phill's Chic Birthday Verses Stamp Set used inside with Jet Black Archival. Flowers from same set stamped using Dusty Concord Distress Ink.

Leaves cut using Sue's Greek Corner Border & Tag Die Set. Flower made using Sue's Perfect Peony Complete Petals with Iced Snow Gliiter Jewels added.

Sue's Enjoy Expression Die for the sentiment.

All for now.

Thanks for stopping by.

  21. Hi Julia. I love to see a quick card now and again as we all have to make them. As I don't know how old Nathan is, I am wondering what film you went to see and was it good?

  22. Have just bought the square noble dies so will try something similar with them. As Jan says, quick is good! A lovely card, Julia.
