Hi Bloggers.

Here's todays card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Heart Lattice Embossing Folder.

I stamped the sentiment from the Uplifting Thoughts Stamp Set onto Periwinkle Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Shine Detail Embossing Powder. I stamped one of the Mini Elegant Frames onto Coconut White Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Silver Shine Detail Powder. I stamped the Flower Twist Stamp onto Periwinkle Card, again using Perfect Medium and embossed with Silver Shine Detail Powder. I cut them all out using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B but I embossed first before cutting as the die cuts usually pop out of the die as they're cut and oftem move when you emboss them.

I cut 2 Couture Creations Lotus Filet out of Coconut White Card. I trimmed them so that together they fit behind the Flower Twist Frame. I fixed them together and added them to the background. I wrapped a piece of White Crochet Ribbon around to hide the join.

I made a couple of flowers out of White Crochet Ribbon and cut a couple of leaves out of Periwinkle Card using Sue's Faux Quilled Leaves Die.

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

Thanks for stopping by.
