Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I simply ran some Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Spellbinders Elite M-Bossabilities Folder. I inked around the edges with Stonewashed Adirondack Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I dusted a piece of Coconut White Card with my Anti-Static Bag and stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Falling Leaves Stamp Set and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Steel Blue Embossing Powder from the Metallics & Darks Set. I cut it out using the largest of the Fancy Postage Edge dies. While Still in the die, I stamped the Ivy Branch from the same stamp around the edges using the Stonewashed Ink Pad. I then inked through the die with Stonewashed using Cut n Dry Foam. I threaded some Blue Baker's Twine from the Primary Set  through the holes in the die cut.

I tied a bow out of Blue Satin Edged Organza. I made a flower using the Bitty Blossoms die set, inking through the die with Stonewashed before rolling.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
