Create a Card - Precious

Hi Everybody,

Todays featured card is from the Create A Card die called   Precious and I must admit that this is one of my favorites.

I dare you to make this and not add tiny pearls into the cross sections.  I had to add the little blue ones and they look lovely.

On the top of this I have layered the Gold Majesty Circles after I had inked through the die.

The sentiment is from my "Stash" and is one I bought a craft show quite some time ago.

The ribbon and lace around the layers are also from my bit box but the flowers and the diamante centre to the bow are from Wild Orchid Crafts 

Here is another pretty Hatpin to add that special touch and it can be removed if needed.

I like this card ... the die, the ribbon and the color and it is much better in real life.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
