 Hello everyone,

Hope you are all well and happy and enjoying the nicer weather..I'm enjoying Autumn at the moment, I can breathe and the days are so beautiful, although the darkness is creeping in faster, I really don't mind..

So what have I been up to..well, I sorted my folders and things and tried to sort out matching die cutting pictures with cards and just gave up as there are too many and I get all strung out, so I'm going to just start at the beginning and open each folder and do a post..

First up..bright pink flowers..

Such a beautiful card stock, pearl pink on one side and a hotter pink on the other so it makes for perfect layering..

Which it did with my new Tim Holtz flower die, I have cut this out in all colours and glued the layers quietly for days..
I have alternated the colours, dark on the bottom light on the top and vice versa..

The leaves I would have die cut out and layered over 100 times..water coloured them, painted them, sprayed them,sponged them, I have heaps of them all ready to go.

These flowers and leaves were displayed on corrugated card stock, black with tiny gold flecks from my stash..

A simple sentiment stamp used..I stamped loads of these too and cut them out, distressed the edges and inked them just to have on hand..

And I have kept the downsized card as I'm enjoying them..

So there we go, now I just have to fine the card with the opposite colours to this..dark pink with lighter top..have to be somewhere..

Thank you so much for stopping by..I'll se you tomorrow..

Gorgeous card. Love the pretty layered flowers.

Stunning! Your beautiful pink flowers really pop against the black background (love the corrugated texture) - you have such patience to die cut and layer all these gorgeous leaves and flowers- but the result is worth the time spent.
