Hello there my crafty friends! I have a cheerful card for a Monday morning. I started by using a piece of my Classic Elegance Paper Pad for my background. I cut a smaller strip and matted it with white card and added mounting foam to raise it for a small border on the lower portion of the card. I cut the Bruges die in white for my focal element in the upper portion of the card. I cut the inside die from the Antwerp die and layered it up on top of the Bruges die cut. I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the small oval from the Antwerp and inked it lightly before adding it to the centre of the card. I cut a white butterfly from the Magical Butterflies set and added it to the upper corner. I decorated the lower border with a poppy cut from white card then using a thin marker, I added the lines onto the petals before sugaring it with Iced Snow. I seated it on some lilac silk ribbon (from my stash) and adding some white heart sprays around it as accents. The card was completed with white and wisteria mats and
layers. The finished dimensions are 7" x 8" in size. All for now, Sue x
