Hi Bloggers.

What a day we had yesterday! So many people in Phill's shop and so much fun!

Here's today's card -

Both backgrounds, are Milk Card run through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Art Deco Fanfare Embossing Folder. I matted then onto Black Card and wrapped a piece of Black/Ivory Striped Grosgrain around the centre.

I stamped the frame and the sentiment from the Justrite Live, Love, Laugh Vintage Labels Two Clear Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival. I added the 'Laugh' and 'Love' banners to the frame, again using Jet Black Archival. I cut out using Justrite Vintage Labels Two Dies.

 I cut 2 of the Justrite Heirloom Flourish Two Die out of Black Card and tucked them behind the Labels Two Frame.

I tied a bow using the Black/Ivory Grosgrain and added a Black Vintage Button.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Black Pearls and pierced around the edges.

Phill has show's today on Create & Craft at 9am and 2pm. Hope you can join him.

Thanks for stopping by.
