At Last - A Card!

Good morning friends. Well I have finally managed to finish a card.  I have made a few starts over the last few days but this is the only one I have actually finished.  Hopefully this might finally break the block.

My Card


Click on image to enlarge picture

I have used the die that the lovely Ang, aka Mrs Duck, sent me as part of my "Paddle Prize". You can find her blog HERE. The die is A2 Fancy Weave from Spellbinders.  My card is 7" x 5" cut from white cardstock, and I die cut the largest two dies from the same card. I'm not sure where the spotty paper is from because it is from my snippets box. I also die cut the HeartFelt Creations Delicate Asters from Bazzill basics pieces, also from the snippets box. The sentiment is from JustRite Stamps Grand Sentiments and stamped with a purple pigment ink from Hobbycraft. The pearly sprays are Zva which I bought from the Ribbon Girl.

I shall endeavour to use some more of the lovely things that Ang sent me soon. Hope this finds you all well and nobody has been flooded. This weather is pretty horrendous, and there is still more to come! Keep safe and dry!!

Christine, I really love the way you used this die. I have it, and find it difficult to think of a way to use it well. You sure succeeded on this one. Love the white & purple too. The little glittered flourish was a perfect accompaniment to your pretty flowers. I see you used snippets. Maybe you might think of submitting it to http://pixiescraftyworkshop.blogspot.com/2014/01/pixies-snippets-playground-week-106.html which is still open for another day. It's perfect! Off to enjoy some more of your posts. TFS & Hugs

I simply LOVE the box below and ofcourse this card too. I like the romantic look of both of them.
I still wish you all the best for 2014. Stay in good health and enjoy life and crafting!
Have a nice sunday,
