Neutral Colors ...

 Hi Everybody,

For this card I have used only black and cream to give me a really striking effect.

The card I have used is from Anna Griffin and it is such a wonderful quality

The sentiment is the free one from my magazine subscription but it was a couple of months ago and may not now be available

I have use Spellbinders Twisted Metal Tags and this is one on my  favorite tag dies

I have layered it onto Opulent Ovals #6  and added in two of the flourishes from Foliage Flourish to give a lovely swirly effect

The large flowers in the centre is one I made and added in the pearls.

The black pearl flourish around the sentiment and those in the corner of the card are  from Want2Scrap

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  24. This colour combination is so striking...I have used this Twisted Metal Tag die today too for a male card I have made, I use it so often as well. I love this card Christina, the flourish and flowers just finish it off....That pearl embellishment looks like one I just got off junk jewellery from Primark !!! luv Ursula xx

  33. Now this one is so elegant looking, I would like to buy some bigger matting and layaring dies in squares and rectangles can you recommend any please, but not too expensive not the Grand by spellbinders as they cos too much, but any others I could hove a look at, maybe you have tested some and liked them, many thanks Julie xx julielazenby@ymail.com
