Borrowed Dies -

Good morning dear blog friends. I wouldn't have this card to show at all if it wasn't for a very special lady - Marie-Louise of   Welcome to my World. who very kindly loaned me her set of SB Enchanted Labels 28. Thank you so much Marie-Louise!!

My Card

Click on image to enlarge picture.

I made a hinged card using the enchanted labels set and Centura Pearl card stock. The sentiment, from Our Daily Bread Designs "Little Things",  was stamped onto the same card and die cut with SB Classic Squares Large and mounted onto SB Lacy Squares in pale lemon to tone with the spotted backing paper - from a very old Papermania set. The spots look white in the picture but they are in fact creamy yellow.The pearls and ribbon are from my stash.

Yesterday was the most fabulous day and we visited a National Trust property. It was lovely to wander through the gardens - without a coat on !!!!! Let's hope it lasts for a while yet.

Well, that's it from me. Hope you all have a great day!

Love and hugs from Christine xx
