May Time Bring Happy Memories...

Hi there crafting buddies, hope today finds you all well, less than four weeks to Christmas HEELLLP!!! Still not much Christmas shopping done!!! Doesn't it creep up fast?!!!

Today's post is one of those cards you never like to make but sometimes have too. I have not had to may I hasten to add but I liked the sentiment so used it!!!

I started with my basic White card and matted it up with some Lilac card. I embossed some Rich Purple card with Knotted Trellis, rubbed gilding wax around the edge and attached this to my base card. 

Using the Sue Wilson Austrian Background I die cut with White card and adhered to some Lilac card and placed this in the center, raising it up with foam tape.

The center piece I die cut out of Rich Purple card and White card, stamped my sentiment onto the White card and cut round the edge to fit inside the Purple piece as seen.

There you have the finished card.
