Lilac and White

Hi Everybody,

Todays card is in a really pretty Lilac and white combination with a Cadbury purple ribbon and bow along the bottom.

I added in flowers that blend and sparkled them up with glitter.

The Spellbinders dies I have used are Labels 56 and I have just used the Classic set and snot the fancy ones that match

The card was very quick and easy to make and this is a useful die set to have ... especially if you get the Decorative Elements that match.

I bought the sentiment in a set of stamps from the craft show and I can't remember who it was by

I used the 5x7 embossing folder for the background panel as I really don't like this part of the card to look too plain

Little pearls have been dotted here and there around the flowers just as added interest.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  17. Hi Christina,
    A very happy August to you! What a pretty card for the first of the month...a month that, down here in my part of Cornwall, has started off to be a wet one! What a change from yesterday when it was really too hot for me, especially as I was moving furniture and laying carpet...again lol.
    I'm really pleased to be able to say that I've actually got the dies that you've used for this card so I think I can have a go at making my own version of it. I bet it doesn't look anything like the original by the time I've finished...note to self: get that flower order in as soon as possible :).
