Spellbinders Round Two Submission - Renassiance Cherub

As promised yesterday, here is my submission for Round Two of the Spellbinders Design Team Competition.  As my first project was Mixed Media (you can see it here and here) I decided  to make a Gatefold Card.

I have used the Spellbinders Grand Labels Eleven Die to create my card case along with the Spellbinders Label One Die, Classic Scalloped Heart Die and Spellbinders Fancy Tags One Die and paired it with the Layers of Color Angelic clear art stamp set and some Stampin' Up DP - totally vintage and just my style!

The inside holds a pocket using the Spellbinders Ironworks Accents Die created by the very talented Nina Brackett - how exciting to see she is having her own line with Spellbinders - I know they will all be high on my Wish List!

The tag is created using the reverse of the Spellbinders Ironworks Accents Die, too gorgeous to throw away, along with the Spellbinders Labels One Die and a Motif from the Spellbinders Ironworks Accents Die.

Embellished with Wild Orchid Flowers, vintage lace and pearls - everything I love!
