Hi Bloggers.

Hope you had a good Christmas Day. Here's today's card -

A demo bits card yet again! The background is Coconut White Card with Phill Martin CS Frosty Blue Sparkle Texture Paste spread through the Criss Cross Mask.

The borders are brom Sue Wilson's Spanish Collection Corner, Border & Tag Set - cut in Coconut White and backed with a strip of Sky Blue Card.

The sentiment and the daisy chain heart are from John Lockwood's Daisy Chain Elements Stamp Set, stamped onto Coconut White Card using Cobalt Archival. This was originally stamped onto a Spellbinders Triple Flip Card die cut but, as many of you will have witnessed if you've been to one of my Spellbinders demos this year, I got ink on some areas on the other sections on the die cut. Now, I usually use it anyway but this one had too much mess on it for me so, although not designed for it, I cut it out using Sue's Heart of Hearts Die Set and inked through the die with Phill Martin CS Frosty Sky Colour Cloud applied with a Smoothie. I cut the largest die in the set out of Sky Blue Card.

I cut some of Sue's Delicate Daisies Open Petals our of Cobalt Card and some of Sue's Laurel Leaves out of Coconut White Card, inking through the die with Frosty Sky. I added some Frosty Sky Twinkles to the centre of the flowers and then sprinkled some CS Iced Snow Glitter Jewels over.

I assembled the card as shown piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.
