Hello friends,  I could not let today go past without sharing a card with you - something a little bit shabby today!

I have used the 'negative' from the Silhouette Spellbinders® Shapeabilities®, this has been layered onto white cardstock using liquid glue.  Next it is layered onto the Lacey Circles Spellbinders® Nestabilities® Decorative Elements using Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L - 3D Foam Squares for dimension.  These Dies have then been layered onto the Gold Majesty Circles Spellbinders® Imperial Gold die

The patterned paper has been embossed using the Dotted Flowers Spellbinders® M-Bossabilities™ folder, the edges sponged using  IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink in Espresso Truffle.

Finishing off by adding Seam Binding, button and pearls.

This card is for the following challenges:

  10. Linda, hi! As soon as I opened your blog my immediate reaction to your GORGEOUS card was O M G!!! I don't know why, but I don't usually think of patterned paper with dies, and this is stunning! Anyway, I've been with Christina Griffiths for a couple of years now, and am on the blog hop meeting some of her new friends. I scanned further down your page and found your Cameo card . . . another jaw dropper! Just BEAUTIFUL!!! We have very similar taste, but you have the skill to actually pull it off!!! I'm going to see if I can find you on YouTube or Pinterest or see if I can follow your blog. Many thanks for allowing me to visit! Nancy P, USA
