"Floral Fancy"

Good Morning Blog friends, Thank you for continuing to stop and visit my creative corner.  I love to share and hope you get some inspiration.
Could not sleep Friday/ Saturday, was up early got almost everything done before lunch so had all afternoon to "Play".  WOW! what a mess the kitchen was in.   Hazel phoned, we had a chat, I told her that if I went out and left the door open no burglar would bother to come in.  They would have taken one look and thought someone had beaten them to it...................!!!   It does not take me long to tidy up thank goodness.  I have a section of the kitchen cupboards that house a lot of my Crafty Stuff, once that`s away and the floor is swept it`s fine again.

Today`s card is one of my yesterday`s creations, a few bits from the Bit Box plus few Die cut bits.

Base card an 8 x 8  bought at Hobbycraft Glasgow
Pink Patterned card from a Tilda Paper Stack (Autumn Lilac)
White card cut with Spellbinder Grand Scalloped Dies
Next layer is reverse side of the first card layer
White card embossed with embossing folder from Crafters Companion
Spellbinder Fancy Oval Dies for the centre piece
I cut one in white and one in pink.  I cut the pink in half to stretch it to give me the effect of a double layer
Organza Ribbon from my Ribbon Box
Couple of sick pins and pearls from my stash
I very lightly distressed the edges of the patterned card

In the Tilda Paper Stacks the sheets are all double sided.  You get some nice bits like tags, sentiments and embellishments, if you don`t want to use these the other side is patterned, you can use that.    The tags and sentiments are not Die cut so I just had a look till I found the Roses that fitted the Die I had.   They call it a paper stack but in actual fact it is really card approx 240gsm.  The Tilda "Autumn Lilac" is a very pale Stack and I would not buy this one again.  I have the Tilda "Flower Garden" Paper Stack and I love the patterns in that one.  I have made a lot of my Gift Bags using "Flower Garden" card.   I will buy that again.

That`s it for today
Thank you  for calling by I really appreciate it
