Just For You

Good morning all!  I really did try to get the true colour to show up on this card, but afraid that you will have to just use your imagination to see the cream and soft gold colour palette.  I started with a piece of background paper from Teresa Collins Designs.  I cut two of the layered elegant swirl dies from Heartfelt Creations out of soft gold card.  I decided on a layout on a diagonal,  something different, I have not done before.  I used the largest size from the Labels 20 set and cut it out of decorative paper with a soft script design.  I attached this diagonally in the centre of my card.  I cut a smaller die from milk coloured card and inked it lightly with Antique Linen distress ink while still in the die.  I stamped my sentiment (from Justrite Stamps) and cut it out with Fancy Tags two.  I mounted this one straight in the centre.  I tied a double bow from silky crush ribbon, added a couple of crystal stick pins and a fancy button from my craft stash.  I added this to the side of my focal element for a bit of girliness to the card.  I finished by adding a pearl swirl to the top and piercing around the edges.  A really easy card with a lovely result for any occasion. 
It's time for this weeks comment game winners!  It does come around quickly doesn't it!  This week's winners are:
Sue E!!!
Izzwizz!!!
Kim Witziers!!!

Congratulations!!! Please email me at americansue1@gmail.com to confirm your address and claim your prize.  All for now, Sue x

What a beautiful card - I really like the format and using the dies at an angle makes all the difference doesn't it?(or in my language (at a jaunty angle). I agree it's a card for any occasion and really any gentle colour combo.
