Today's card is a mixture of Scandinavian dies and lovely Lyra of course, both dies sets from Creative Expressions, designed by our lovely Sue Wilson.
I actually don't own the lovely Lyra die, I used Sue (Mrs B's) die when we got together on
I uses it to cut the top and bottom of a piece of what I would describe as a dark plum colour card,
I put a piece of cream card underneath, which covered my 8x 8 white card base, although I did grim a little off the bottom of the card before I Matt and layered. Next I cut the largest layer of the Copenhagen dies in the Scandinavian range, I then cut the decorative layer in the plum card, I stamped the sentiment onto the cream card using Seedless Preserves Distress ink that matched really well, I cut it out using the Stockholm centre piece, these dies mix and match so well!
I made three roses using the Classic Rose Dies by Creative Expressions, and mixed them with some paper roses from my stash, I mounted them on top of two of the Ivy die cuts again By CE,
I popped a little butterfly in the top corner with a pearl swirl trail.
Let me know what you think, I love reading your thoughts and comments.
I will be doing another little post today, my youngest daughter Sophie ( younger by a whole hour and half) is doing GCSE Art and she drew a picture of a dinosaur yesterday, she would like you all to see it, Although it isn't strictly a card I think we can get away with it.
