Lovely in Lilac ...

Hi Everybody,

Todays card is the style I really enjoy making and I could do this all day given the chance.  It measures almost 8 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches and will just about fit on the card stand.

I have started the base card in white then added a layer of lilac.  The next layer of white has been embossed and all the corners have been rounded.

The panel on the left has been made with the Fancy  Lattice and then cut down to the size I wanted and matted to the lilac card.... then glued in place.

The next layers are from the 5 x 7 Matting Basics and the Detailed Scallops which is turning out to be one of my favorites dies.

I then cut the second die from the Scalloped set in white and added it with foam pads to the centre of the front.  The sentiment has been stamped and embossed and then placed behind a frame made from Labels 20.

I have added in the matching Diamante frame from  Want2Scrap  and this has been added with foam pads.

The lilac trim has been added under the sentiment and I have created a a bow and used a Diamante buckle from The Hobby House

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts  and are a mixture of Tulips, Roses, and Carnations ... and they have all been glittered with Glamour Dust ... and this one I like

Hugs xx
