Back to Cards ...

Hi Everybody,

After all the excitement about Isabellas' House I thought I would return to a card.

This is in a lovely shade of burnt orange and I have used the Heirloom Ovals  from Spellbinders

This is a large die and makes beautiful cards either as part of another like this ... or as a free standing card with a lovely shape by using the outer cutting edge

I have used the verse from JustRite Stampers  and stamped it in black then clear embossed

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts  and are a lovely collection of Tulips, Roses, Cherry Blossom and Lilies

The pearls are from Want2Scrap  and I have added them to some lace.

Maybe not a color to every bodies taste but it does look quite pretty in the hand

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  13. Good Morning Christina :) Wow!! This is a very Beautiful Card! I just love it when you do something jussssssst a little different. You have such an artful eye Christina, and when you put your "Creative Touch" on it, it always comes out beautiful. The lace you used has given me an idea I want to try. Thank you sooooo much for sharing. I enjoyed my "Cup-O-Beauty" this morning! Enjoy a lovely day. Big Hugs.
