Good morning all, I know it is so close to Christmas and I should be posting Christmas cards for you, but I have always been a bit of a rebel of sorts so no green and red! How 'bout pink and grey today? I like this card as it could have just as easily said "On your special day" and be used for a wedding or anniversary card, don't you think? I think the white organza flowers really give it a romantic feel too. I started with a beaded circle die cut in dark grey for my focal element. I cut a lacy oval die in a pale grey and layered it on top. The pink die was cut from the fancy tag die set then I cut it in half so that I could arrange the two ends to be peeking out of the top and bottom of the lacy oval. It wasn't quite long enough without cutting it and separating the two pieces. Then I cut two of the lacy squares and layered them in a diamond fashion. I stamped my sentiment before cutting the smallest one and inked it with Tattered Rose Distress ink while still in the die. I decided to do the layout on a diagonal cut for interest. The bottom half of the card was embossed with the Ornate Diamond embossing folder and then lightly sanded to bring out the pattern a bit more. I added the roses across the diagonal line between the two papers and added some pearls and ribbon which I wove between them. Still wanting a bit of that romantic feel to come out, I added some pearly swirly bits to the sides of my focal element. The card was matted and layered and paper pierced to complete the card (because I never do that, huh?) LOL Oh and that is not an oil stain in the corner, it is another of my infamous shadows, you can almost make out my head in this one! I know what is going to be the top of my resolution list in the new year. 1). Learn to take decent photos!!!
Shadow aside, I hope you like today's card! All for now, Sue x
