Follow Your Soul

Hi Bloggers.

We had a fun but exhausting day yesterday at CE HQ - I won't be up very early today! Although, I do need to get my website orders in the post so won't be able to stay in bed too long.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I embossed a piece of Bright White Card using the Creative Expressions Treasure Box Embossing Folder. I inked around the edges with CS Rose Blush Colour Cloud using a Smoothie.

I cut a strip from one of the papers in the Craft Consortium Wild Rose 12 x 12 Paper Pad, halved it and added it to my background as shown.

I stamped the sentiment from Phill Martin's Mini Baroque Inspirational Sentiments Stamp Set onto Bright White Card using Watering Can Archival. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 50 Decorative Elements and inked through the die with Rose Blush Colour Cloud.

I cut the largest die in the Spellbinders Labels 50 Decorative Accents Die Set out of another paper from the Wild Rose Paper Pad.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of CE Colonial Rose Satin Ribbon and added a Craft Consortium Vintage Pearl Charm.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 3mm White Pearls and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

Phill Martin is launching a One Day Special this evening with part 2 of his new Timeless Collection. I'm offering 10% discount on items I have in stock from the shows. You can find them here. Offer valid till midnight tomorrow night.
