Using Dies for IAAS

Good morning.  Can you believe I am here for the second day running?  This is actually a cheat card - what I laughingly call a "Blue Peter" card... lol!  I actually made it last year but haven't yet shown it on my blog.  Since it fit the brief for the current challenge at International Art and Soul I thought I would use it for my DT offering  as I had nothing else.

Please scroll down if you are looking for my Christmas Card Club card.

My Card

7" x 5" tent fold card - cream pearlescent cardstock 
(Crafter's Companion)
Gold mirri card  - in stash
cream and gold backing paper -  Craftwork Cards
Card Creator (? which) - Spellbinders
aster dies - Heartfelt Creations
rose leaf die - Britannia dies
pearls - from stash
ribbon - local haberdashery

I am not too keen on the backing paper because it is so busy, but the recipient liked it so that's what counts.

Please pop over to the blog and see what my teamies have made for this challenge and maybe you will be inspired to join in. We are a "Just For Fun" challenge blog so no prizes I'm afraid, although we do have some great banners for the winners. Sometime I think we  need a little bit of a push to get us motivated (I need a huge shove at the moment!!!) and if we have a theme to follow it helps.

Anyway, enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Super card Christine - I like your card and don't think the paper is too busy 'cos as I mentioned earlier it's because you've used gold and ivory and they are beautiful together. Hugs to you Sue Pxxx
