Borrowed Dies

Good morning to all my friends and fellow bloggers, and many thanks for dropping by today. Well we are having some glorious weather again, what we used to call an Indian Summer, but I think it is only due to last a few days.

 A couple of days ago I admired the die that my friend Jenny - Cardsarus - had used on her card that day. She very kindly loaned me the dies and wow!  I have really fallen in love with this Tonic Twisting Veranda Layering die set and I have used it on my card today.  This is definitely at the top of my "must have" list!

My Card

White card stock - Hobbycraft
Lilac card stock - Core'dinations
Twisting Veranda dies - Tonic
Maidenhair fern - Sue Wilson
Sentiment stamp - JustRite Birthday Vintage Labels 4
 Purple/White Tone Bloom Set flowers - Wild Orchid Craft
Ribbon - stash
Pearls - The Hobby House

I used the largest die to make an easel card and then just took it fom there.  As you can see I used quite a lot of the eleven dies from the set ... lol!I can't wait to make another card - possibly using fewer dies, but I got carried away!Thank you so much Jenny!!!

Well that's all from me today.  Hope everybody is well and if not I hope you feel better soon.

Take care!
