Special Day

Good morning , and it really is lovely today.  The sun is shining although still a little fresh, but it's early yet.  Hope everyone is feeling fit and well.  We are going to go off to another National Trust property again today - make the most of the weather!

My Card

5" x 7" card base made from Hobbycraft card stock
lilac card stock - Hobbycraft
Elegant Labels 4  die - Spellbinders
Labels 4 die - Spellbinders
A2 Tranquil Moments die - Spellbinders
Faux Quilled leaves - Creative Expressions
Flowers, ribbon and pearls  - from stash
pearl pin - gift from Wendy (Spanish Crafter)
Sentiment - computer generated

I used lots of dies on this card but I think it looks very delicate.   I have this sentiment on a stamp and wanted to use it on this card but it didn't fit the Tranquil Moments die unless I turned the die and I didn't want to do that.  Instead I played around with different fonts on my computer until I came up with something I liked.  I think this card could be used for birthday, anniversary, wedding etc so quite a versatile one to have in my box.

Take care and enjoy whatever you are doing today.


  1. Beautiful card, lovely sentiment. Enjoy your day

  2. Wow, Christine, what an amazing bow on a gorgeous card. Love the colours and the sentiment.
    Have been very busy with my work, so I am enjoying the sun by looking out of the window of my 'study' where I am writing the textes for 3 magazines (always so much to do after coming home from holidays). My cards have all been made in advance. Still one more week till I am ready and will be able to make cards again! Hope you are well!

  9. Hi Christine,
    what a very stunning card, and beautifully created.
    I love the fab colour pink it is so subtle, and those die cuts are excellent in your arrangement of them.
    You have just reminded me I still have quite a few of those from when you lent me the die.
    Must remember to use them.
    I do hope you have enjoyed your day out today.
    The weather here has been glorious also.
    Love and biggest hugs from my house to yours.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
