Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I started by inking through the Ornate Mask onto some Milk Card using Stonewashed Adirondack Dye Ink. I then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Openwork Mask and inked around the edges with Stonewashed Ink.

I stamped the image from the Justrite Pansies in Spring Stamp Set onto Periwinkle Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Decorative Labels One and inked through the die with Stonewashed Ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set, again using Perfect Medium and embossed with Gold Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 7 Dies and inked through the die with Stonewashed Ink.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Champagne Silky Crush Ribbon and added a Vintage Gold Button.

I assembled the card as shown adding a Cream 8mm Pearl in each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Vanilla PVA around the edges.

I'll be back tomorrow with a sneak peek from Sunday's shows.

Thanks for stopping by.
