Todays card came about as I so loved the card that Sue Wilson made on her blog on Saturday,
I didn't want to direct copy it, plus I didn't have the stamp that Sue used on her card, so I made a few changes.
I used the fabulous new 8 x 8 embossing folder Scored Lines, by Creative Expressions to emboss a piece of white card ant matted it onto a piece of the purple card and then placed that onto an 8 x 8 white card base. I then used the Creative Expressions Times Square Die, the outside cut in purple, the decorative die and inside die (which I cut 3 of)all cut from white card. I used the decorative centre of
topped with a triple bow tied with the thinnest of the Off White Ribbon from the new Creative expressions range, I popped a lilac colour resin flower to the centre of my bow.
I added a few purple flat backed pearls to finish.
I would loved to hear what you think about my card.
