To My Friend ...

Hi Everybody,

Staying with the Shabby Chic theme for  this card and I have to say I really love this card in the soft and gentle pale pink and green.  It is a 6" square top folded base and I have covered this with some pretty flowery paper that has had the edges distressed.
I have used  Medallions Three   for the pink layer  and added more floral paper to the centre.

The flowers, Cameo and frame are from Wild Orchid Crafts  and they have some beautiful new items in this month that are perfect for this type of look.

The leaves are from Foliage and then I have tucked in some Romantic Vine to the display.  This is a really useful little die to have to help dress out any of your floral arrangements and is one I use quite regularly

To the side of the flowers I have dotted here and there some pink pearls and the petals have a dusting of glitter to make them sparkle.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  23. Oh Christina, this is delightful!! I love the romantic feel of it. You've given me yet another die to go on my wish list with the Romantic Vines (Foliage is already on there lol). I must pop over to WOC and have a look at their new arrivals...my shopping list with them is getting ever longer and when I start spending on craft stash again I'm going to have so much fun going through their site for anything that takes my eye :)
