Create a Card - Aurora

Hi Everybody,

This is the last of the six lovely  new dies from Crafters Companion in the Create a Card series
and this one is  Aurora

I have used the die  complete for this card  and the only  addition is the  scalloped and plain  circles at the bottom  for the sentiment.

The flowers are from   Wild Orchid Crafts   and they have the usual sparkle  to the petals with fine  glitter from  Glitter Magic

But the long stem with the berries is from   AnnaMarie Designs  and I bought these at a craft show last year

This card also has a Hatpin pushed into the bow and the knot is covered with a beautiful red and Diamante sparkler from WOC

The red flourish is from   Want2Scrap  and just fills that small gap on the sentiment tag

The ribbon is some that I bought at a craft show last year and I have doubled it around the card and added a double bow

A bit of a distance from pink ... but just as pretty

So I hope you have enjoyed seeing the new die sets and I have just used them in one way.  There are many ways to use these and  if you remember these are all scheduled posts ... so once I get back home I will make sure to put them to work and show you what I come up with

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  8. Good morning Christina,
    WOW are you going to my English cousins wedding too? He doesn't like to forget his Scottish side of the family as his granny was Scottish. You sure did waken me up with this cracker this morning. It is beautiful and vibrant and with the flowers up the top corner just finishing it off perfectly.
    Love and crafty hugs
