Hello friends! Today's offering is all done in dusty rose, white and soft grey, a pretty combination that I don't use enough! I had some decorative paper in my stash that I used as my background. I liked the tone on tone effect of it. I cut two of the French Borders out of coconut white card and glued them to the sides of the paper. I matted it with a dusty rose card to give it a bit of colour. Using the outside cutting edges from the French Collection set called Provence, I cut a larger dusty rose mat and a smaller soft grey mat as a backdrop for my focal element. I cut the Austrian CollectionSalzburg die out of white card, using the inner die with it, but used the separate cutting edge just as an emboss between the two dies. I like the definition that gives it. I cut the smaller die in the Provence set out of grey card as an accent for my sentiment, which was stamped and cut out with the oval from the tag set in the Austrian Collection. I tied a double bow out of the dusty rose frilly edged ribbon and added some silver twine and a silver satin rose. I made two matching stick pins to finish it off. The card was then completed by piercing around the edge of a piece of white card. I cut a thin grey mat and added a final white mat to finish it off. The finished dimensions are 8 1/4" x 8 1/2" in size.
