You Amaze Me

Hi Bloggers.

I managed to get approx half of my orders out yesterday. I will try and get the rest sent out today.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I stamped the Justrite Blooming Vines Background onto Black Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS True White Detail Embossing Powder. I coloured in using CS Summer Shades Mica Spray Set.

I made a frame out of Coconut White card using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Rectangles and Double Pierced Rectangles Set B. I added it to my background using 3D Foam Tape.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite For All You Do Vintage Labels Three onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using Sue's St.Lucia Die Set.

I made a couple of flowers out of Coconut White and Black Card using Sue's Exquisite Poppy Die Set, using a Pigma Micron Pen to draw the veins in the petals through the dies. I cut some leaves out of Black Card using Sue's Bold Scrolled Vine Die Set.

I assembled my card as shown adding an 8mm Black Pearl to the corners of my frame and mats of Black and Coconut White Card.

Thanks for stopping by.
