 Hello everyone,

Well, that was a busy week with DT posts and scheduling, new releases and new challenges, needed a break after that so I had one, the most laziest weekends on record for was great.

But, today is Monday evening here in NZ and time to share some more projects that I have in my folders..

First up, Aperture card and pink die cut roses...

I embossed a sheet of card, then cut my oval, the embossing folder is too small and I learned how to turn the card after the first pass, line up those leaves and emboss so far up, presto..a full embossed panel..

Ha ha, I thought this photo was vellum, then realised I never use vellum, it is a picture of the short folder!!!

I also cut an oval with MFT black and white diagonal stripe paper...

My flowers die cut and glued together and all ready to go..

Oval glued into place and panel ready for card base with it's beautiful green panel, love that green..

On go the flowers and also those tiny little candy type flowers from my stash, gosh they must be 100 years old now..

And card altogether with tiny little die cut gold butterflies..
and a die cut Happy and stamped was a good day.

Thank you so much for stopping by..

What a gorgeous card, I love the contrast of the
striped paper against beautifully embossed paper. The addition of flowers and little butterflies makes this a super spring card.

The black and white background paper is the elevating factor in this design, it really puts the composition over the top!
