Many Happy Returns

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the weave, I started by cutting Sue Wilson's Striped Weaving Die out of Sky Blue Card twice and out of Lilac Card twice. With CS Glue just at the ends of the strips, I added the Sky Blue die cut to the Lilac Die Cut, offsetting to fill in the gaps. I cut one of the pieces into sections that were 4 strips wide - 1 Lilac, 2 Sky Blue and 1 Lilac. I wove these in and out of the other die cut.

I made a frame out of Sky Blue and Lilac Card using Sue's Ornate Pierced Rectangles. I added it to my woven background using 3D Foam Tape and trimmed away the excess. I cut the largest die in the set out of Lilac Card. I added mats of Sky Blue and Lilac Card and some Small Circle Dazzlers.

I stamped the sentiment from Phill Martin's Butterfly Elegance Sentiments onto Sky Blue Card using Blue Violet Archival. I cut it out using Sue Wilson's Belgian Tags. I cut the corresponding outside die only out of Lilac Card.

I cut Sue's Star Flower Cluster out of Sky Blue and Lilac Card and added some Craft Consortium Small Rhinetones to the centre of the flowers.
