Especially for you ...

Hi Everybody,

Todays card is in a very striking color combination of turquoise and pink

The card base is created from 5x7 Matting Basics A&B and they have been layered together

But to create the shaped border around the top layer I have used Bracket Borders Two  and I used one of the filigree patterns with a cutting edge to give a lovely effect.

I have used Garden Lattice A4 embossing folder for the background.

The sentiment  which was free with this months UK edition of
Simply Cards and Papercrafts ...
has been stamped and embossed with clear powder and double mounted onto Labels Eleven

The flowers and the bows centre piece are both from Wild Orchid Crafts

And the pretty gingham ribbon is from Mei Flower

A very quick and simple card to put together ... ideal for those moments when someone needs a card in a hurry.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
