For Someone So Special

Morning my crafting friends, hope this finds you all safe and well. Many, many thanks for all your wonderful comments on my posts they are really appreciated so do keep leaving them lol!!!  I am full of cold at the moment so have not done much crafting and with going up the hospital  all weekend I have not had the time either, excuses I hear you say lol!

This is one I did have scheduled for Sunday but then realised it was my turn as DT for Lil Patch of Crafty Friends so delayed it a couple of days, so apologies for those of you who may have noticed it briefly on Sunday (Hazel lol!) What am I like????

For todays post I reluctantly used the last sheet of Teal card until I get round to purchasing more lol! I love the look of Teal & White together.

I cut my Teal card to size and pierced round the edge then put it to one side.

Using Sheena Douglass White Stamping card I die cut the Austrian background, cut this in half, trimmed it then attached to the front of the card as a square. To cover the join I die cut the Scandinavian Corners, Boarders and Tags and using the boarder across the middle to hide the join. I die cut another Tag and joined the two tags together in opposite directions, this made a beautiful little square but I attached it as a Diamond. I then attached this to my base card.

I stamped my sentiment onto White card, die cut with the  Standard Circle, inked through with Peacock Feathers and placed on top of the decorative tag die cuts.

To finish the card I added some self adhesive pearls on the boarder and tags as seen and placed some pretty Blue paper on the inside with the Salzburg die cut out of White card and left blank for a message.
