Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

A pretty, shaped card. I love the Spellbinders Grand Stately Circles Die Set.

I cut all the dies, except for the largest one out of Milk Card and inked through the dies with Phill Martin CS Frosty Aqua Colour Cloud using a Smoothie. On the smallest one, I added the Tiles Mask at the emboss stage to add some texture.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Friends Antique Labels One Stamp Set using Cobalt Archival. I cut it out using the smallest die in the Spellbinders Exquisite Labels Eleven and inked through the die with Frosty Aqua.

I made a flower out of Blue/Ivory Striped Grosgrain. I inked a piece of Milk Card with Frosty Aqua and cut a couple of corners from the Spellbinders Moroccan Accents Die Set. I popped these behind my flower.

Thanks for stopping by.
