Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

I stamped the frame and the sentiment from John Lockwood's Cherry Blossom Elements Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Plum Archival. I popped a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet over the image and added Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Sprinkles. I cut it out using Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics A.

I swiped some Seedless Preserves Distress Ink onto my Craft Sheet and used a Water Brush to colour the flowers.

I cut a mat our of Rich Plum Card using Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics B and another out of Coconut White Card using Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics A.

I cut the largest die in the Spellbinders Triple Floral Die Set out of Rich Plum Card and added 3mm White Pearls. I cut the largest die in the Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics A Die Set and added a Small Circle Dazzler to the corners.

I assembled the card as shown piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler.

Thanks for stopping by.
