"With Love"

Hello and welcome to my little corner of Blogland.    Thank you so much for popping in 
Today started nice but as usual by early afternoon it was once again raining.

Today`s card is rather bright and will not actually be used unless I give it to John for his birthday at the end of the month.   Oh! I really very much doubt that it is rather PINK  for a mans card.  Even for John, who I know would accept it without blinking an eye..................cause he got it from little old ME!!!
I do not make such bright cards, that piece of Hot Pink card was in the bundle of bits and was crying out to be used and I wanted to experiment with the Dies.
The Die is one from the Tattered Lace collection by Stephanie Weightman.   Although there are a few dies within each design set, some of the layers are so thin and fragile I would never use them individually.

 Base card aprox 6 x 6
 I cut out the heart using SB Classic Hearts
I cut out the Tattered Lace Heart twice.  Stuck one on the base card, the other I attached only in the centre and left it free elsewhere.  The With love I cut in Pink and attached so that it is floating  across the centre
The card is lined with a piece of white card 
I attached bits that were left along the bottom.   Now that I see the photo I will have to stick a tiny Butterfly or gem on that join.  Maybe not as I think the whole thing will be destined for the re-cycling
Funny how you don`t notice things till they are right there in front of you on the screen

That`s it for today 

Thank you for taking time to visit and for all your lovely comments I really appreciate each and every one
Till next time, be good

  8. Gorgeous card Patricia, I have looked at those dies but so far none have dropped in my basket (maybe the magnets are starting to fail, lol).I expect the shoe will find it's way to my door at some point. Most unusual of me to be so slow. xx Flora

  11. Hi Patricia

    This would be perfect for lots of romantic occasions.

    So many beautiful dies on the market at the moment .. .. and I have hardly progressed passed the standard nestie shapes.

    Oh for a bigger crafty spend purse!!! LOL!!!

    Hope you have a good week.

    Love Jules xx

  12. Fabulous card Patricia, probably not for hubby, but mine's the same if it's from me he would just love it (though he always gets something very special!). I have seen these dies but they look so intricate I haven't ventured to buying any, as I hardly ever use the more fiddly dies I have! Carole Z

  13. Looks great Patricia. I too have looked at the dies but decided no - so far!! Christine xx

  14. Morning Patricia, A super card today, hot pink and white, wow, but I think it would be brilliant used matted onto a much bigger base card and with your usual gorgeous bows and beautiful flowers, don't re-cycle it !!!
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  15. I think this card is luvly and if you hadn't pointed out the join I really don't think I would have noticed it but I think a luvly flutterbye would finish it perfectly and defo not for the recycle bin xx GailT xx

  16. Gorgeous card Patricia. I love the dies, so pretty.
