Kaleidoscope Memories

Hello friends - it is Saturday evening here and I have had a little time to play in The Studio -' just because' - I love these times because I can use some of the things I have put aside to use one day...and then they become UFOs - unfinished objects - you know what I mean - or is it just me?!? LOL!

I have used the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Geo Steps Kaleidoscope by Lene Lok Etched Dies as my starting place.  It has been cut/embossed using the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine and glued onto some patterned paper using liquid glue.  The patterned paper has been trimmed using scissors.  This in turn has been adhered to a card front, using Graphic 45 paper.

A row of lace has been adhered along the join of the patterned papers and a flower from Kaisercraft popped up on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares to the centre of the patterned paper panels.  I have added a light touch of blue to the centre of the flower - using Imagine Memento Ink in Summer Sky.    72 Count - White Pearls have been adhered along the lace trim - wither side of the flower.

A double seam binding bow has been glued to the left of the flower and a handmade embellishment glued to the centre of the bow,  The Kaisercraft sentiment has been popped up onto the bottom right hand corner of the card.
