A Flower for You

Hello Blog Friends - I want to take a moment to welcome my new followers, I appreciate you taking the time to stop by and for the comments you all leave - thank you so much - I have discovered, I am a 'Comment Junky!' LOL!

I have something simple and elegant to share with you today - and you know what that means - it is also quick and easy - and we love that occasionally - don't we!!  I love the way that the Spellbinders dies instantly give a card an elegant look - I have used the Fleur de Lis Rectangles Spellbinders® Nestabilities® Decorative Element, this was one of my first decorative Dies - and still a favourite!!

The image is from the Penny Black Inc. Petal Party Transparent Stamp set and has been stamped using  IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink in Tuxedo Black.  It has then been coloured usingChameleon Pens - these are fabulous to colour with and so easy to get seamless blending - and did I say totally addictive!?

The image has been cut/embossed using the Classic Rectangles LG Spellbinders® Nestabilities.  All Dies have been cut using the Grand Calibur® Die Cutting and Embossing Machine.  The sentiment is also from Penny Black Inc. and has been cut/embossed using Back to Basics Tags Spellbinders® Shapeabilities®.  The Nestabling is from Want2Scrap.   I have also used  Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L - 3D Foam Squares for dimension ,and E-Z Runner on this card.

This card is for the following challenges:
A Crafty Mess - Anything Goes
A Creative Need - Button Up
Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything Goes

  10. What a beautiful card, I love the black die and the addition of the pearls really makes it stand out. I love the flower and the tag with the sentiment is perfect for our challenge at Aud Sentiments, so glad you joined us so I could see your lovely work.

  11. Wow, this is beautiful. Love the die you used and how you filled it with pearls. We're delighted that you joined our Challenge last week at Word Art Wednesday. We hope to see you again this week. Leaving you with God's Word in Hebrews 12:2, "Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." Have a blessed day.
