You are so thoughtful

Hi Bloggers.

First day at Ally Pally today!

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Heart Lattice Embossing Folder and inked around the edges with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Typewriter Sentiments Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B and inked through the die with Squeezed Lemonade. I stamped one of the Mini Elegant Frames Stamps using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer True White Detail Embossing Powder. Again, I cut out using a Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B die.

I cut a Spellbinders Pearl Effects die out of Coconut White Card and inked through the die with Squeezed Lemonade. I cut a Spellbinders Polka Dots die.

I poppeda little Cosmic Shimmer Warm White Matt Chalk Paint onto my Craft Sheet and mixed in a little Frosted Lemon Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Subtle Shades Mica Spray Set. I picked some up onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam and used it to change the colour of a piece of White Crochet Ribbon. I also painted some Metal Art Deco Corners. Once the ribbon was dry, I made a couple of flowers. I cut some leaves using Sue's Petite Vinery Die Set and inked through the dies with Squeezed Lemonade.

I added some Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue to the back of the painted corners and left for a few minutes to go tacky before adding to the background.

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

Thanks for stopping by.
