You're the Best

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

I've used up some demo bits on this card 😊.

For the background, I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card with the the Creative Expressions Provencal Lace Embossing Folder.

I spritzed a piece of Watercolour Card with water. I sprinkled Plum Twist and Golden Mint Pixie Powders over and put aside to dry.

I stamped the sentiment from Phill Martin's Butterfly Elegance Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using die #2 from Sue Wilson's Tahiti Die Set. I cut dies #4 and #6 from the same set out of my Pixie Powder background. I cut dies #3 and #4 together out of Coconut White Card, dies #5 and #6 out of Coconut White Card.

I made some flowers out of Coconut White Card and my Pixie Powder background using Sue's Striped Nasturtium Die Set, adding a Small Circle Dazzler to the centres. I cut the Family Tree Die out of Coconut White Card, snipping off the branches to use as leaves. I also cut Sue's Laurel Leaves out of Coconut White Card.

I assembled the card as shown adding an 8mm White Pearl to the corners and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.
