Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I inked through the Lattice Mask with Dried Marigold. I did start off just thinking that I'd ink a section in each corner but I didn't like that so I ended up being a bit random. I then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Cheerful Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Dried Marigold using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Garden Party Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Stately Circles and inked through the die with Dried Marigold. I coloured in using Cosmic Shimmer Watercolour Paints. I used Emerald Gold and Jade Mint from the the Luscious Greens Set, Golden Scarlet and Tropic Yellow from the Autumn Sunset Set.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with clear powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels Four Dies and inked through the die with Dried Marigold.

I tied a bow using Cream Crochet Ribbon and added a Frosted Peach Dazzler.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Cream Pearls in the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Golden Pearl around the edges.

Don't forget that Sue is back on Create & Craft today at 12noon for 2 hours and then again at 5pm for an hour. She has some fab new products on her shows.

Thanks for stopping by.
