Forever Friends

Hello crafters!  I have gone back to my scrap box for today's card.  I selected some custard, gold and black card pieces and cut them into 1/2" strips.  I alternated the colours onto another piece of card covered with a sticky adhesive sheet.  I used the Clipped Corner Rectangles and made a multi-layered frame with a wider white base and a thinner antique gold frame on top.  I added mounting foam to the back of the frame and attached a piece of white card as a backing.  I cut the Layered Daffodils out of white and custard card and assembled them then added them to several leafy green stalks.  I cut the sentiment from a Wordie sheet and added it at the bottom of the flower.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are ???? in size.

Now for the winner of the entire set of sixteen dies in the January release is...................................................................................................................

Marion Scott!!!

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