Fabulous Day

Good Monday Afternoon,
Thank you for taking the time to stop by and reading my blog.
Todays card is made using Creative Expressions French Collection Provence and Auvergne Dies, (the inner part of Provence and outer cutting edge of the Auvergne), these are my lovely friend Pat's
dies, I had a play with them and fell in love, some of these dies are so much more beautiful in the flesh!
I used some teal coloured card from my stash, ran it through the Floral Brocade A4 embossing folder from Creative Expressions, designed by the pure genius Sue Wilson, I matted and layered it onto an 8x8 base, I then die cut the French collection dies in both Teal and White and layered them, I stamped the sentiment from a Justrite set and added a few teal coloured gems. I made two stickpins with matching colour beads. I used some Tulle and topped with a matching colour American seam binding ribbon from Creative Expressions tied into a messy bow. I matted a strip of white card (embossed with the same folder) added a few teal adhesive gems. To finish the bow I put together a small arrangement of Teal roses and white paper flowers and a few bits of the new Trailing Ivy dies from Creative Expressions, another gorgeous die that I can't wait to play with.
I Hope you like the card today, as it is the 1st of December I will be showcasing the odd Christmas card  over the next few days, I will put my hands up and admit that up until now I have only made one Christmas Card, so I best get busy!
please see further images of the card below. 
I would love you to stop by again tomorrow, I love reading your comments, they really inspire me to carry on.
