You mean the world to me

Hi Bloggers.

Firstly, I must apologise for not doing the draw for the Freebie Friday card yesterday - it completely slipped my mind. So, without further ado, the winner of the card from Freebie Friday on 1st July is...........

Sue MacFall

Please email me at juliawattscrafts@gmail.com with your address and I'll pop it in the post.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I embossed a piece of lovely Midnight Blue Card using the Spellbinders Ornamental Iron M-Bossabilities Folder. I wrapped a piece of Craft Consortium Floral Notes Lace Ribbon around as shown.

I cut the largest die in the Spellbinders Jewelled Frame out of Coconut White Card. I cut 4 flowers using one of the bonus dies from the Spellbinders Embroidered Flowers Stamp/Die Set out of Midnight Blue Pearl Card and added them to the corners of my frame.

I stamped the stamp from the Spellbinders Embroidered Flowers Stamp/Die Set onto Coconut White Card using Cobalt Archival. I cut it out using the die from the set. I tend to emboss also but it's not necessary.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Chrysanthemum Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Cobalt Archival. I cut it out using an inner die from the Spellbinders Renaissance Tags Two Die Set.

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