Best wishes ...

Hi Everybody,

Todays card is a million miles away from a Christmas card and is created in a very pretty turquoise and white.

The little splash of yellow just livens it up a little more and it a really lovely combination to use.

The card is made with Grand Labels One and topped with the Decorative labels and is quite a large card

The list of dies is at the bottom of the post so that you can see which they are.

I have used two different ovals to create a frame and add to the top of the card with the sentiment inside.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts with some glitter to make them sparkle and it is from Glitter Magic    I like to use the Iridescent one called Chameleon as it matches with any color that you use for your cards.

The Diamante flourish is from Want2Scrap  and gives that touch of luxury.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  4. Morning Christina,
    Lovely card. I like the blue with just that little splash of yellow.

  5. Hi Christina
    I love today's card. Blue isn't my colour but it's slowly growing on me. Thanks for letting us know what you use. Not to sure if you read these comments, but I thought Grand Labels one was the one with the corners cut out?.

  6. I very much like the shaped cards, and this one is no exception Christina.

  7. Lovely Christina! Really like the colour combination.

  8. Yet another really beautiful card just love those flowers too really stunning.

  10. Good morning Christina,
    Hooray, i can actually make today's card as i have finally got all the components with the arrival of the grand labels 1 on Monday. Thank you Christina for making another beautiful card for us to get inspired with and to use our dies in a card base way as well as for decoration. It is so lovely with the hint of blue and how i do love the opulent oval dies from SB, they are just so pretty.
    Love and crafty hugs
