Hi and Good Morning - Alison here today :)
Wow!! We had some gorgeous entries to our Doilies challenge last week and so many to choose from it was really hard to pick just a Top 3. So the DT finally settled on a Top 4 and in order of entry we loved seeing:
Well done ladies, it was a pleasure visiting your blogs and seeing your fabulous creations! Please contact us for your Weekly Spotlight Badge to display on your blog.
Now for my card this week I wanted to have a really good play with some more of the New Release dies. There is such a variety of styles and themes, but they all work so well together too!
I used a 6 x 6 inch scalloped card base and stitched Prima papers to white American Crafts cardstock. I used this cardstock for all the dies cut on this project and it cuts beautifully :)
I cut the gorgeous Bird Cage, and the Cherry Blossom flowers, twigs and Babys Breath from the Build a Flower Embellishment #2 set and arranged them in the top right corner. The Lace Hummingbird Flourish was layered onto stacker circles, and then also embellished with Mini Butterflies and cherry blossom.
The border was created using another of my favourite Celtic Band borders and decorated with more cherry blossom flowers. I finally added pearls and glamour dust/snow glitter with a glue pen to give shimmery highlights.
All dies used on this card are:
This was quite a quick card for me and the dies take all the credit for making it look so delicate and pretty :).
I hope we see lots of entries again this week, as its Anything Goes you can just let your imagination and creativity roam free. You have until Sunday to join in and dont forget there is also daily inspiration from the rest of the talented DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog.
I hope everyone has a smashing week and thanks so much for visiting today.
