Graceful Pink - Just For You

Good Morning Everyone,

Another lovely day is forecast, I do hope the weatherman is right.

Once again thank you to everyone for your lovely emails and comments, its nice to know I give inspiration to lots of you, but then I am privileged to have one of the best teachers in the crafting world. :-)

On with today's card:-

Products used ( which are links to Phill's website) :-)

8 x 8 Card Blank
Plain White Card Stock
 Butterflies -in-flight Background Stamp
Graceful Butterflies and Dragonflies Paper Pad
Graceful Pink P.V.A.
Graceful Pink Twinkles
Graceful Pink Mica Powder
Baroque Sentiments Collection A5 Stamps
Sue Wilson Dies Spanish - Cordoba
Sue Wilson Dies Petite Vinery
Spell Binder Dies Enchanted Labels Twenty Eight
Spell Binder Dies Bloom Four
Small Dazzlers

8 x 8 Card Blank
1st layer White Card Stock cut to 7.75 sq,
I pierced around the edge and then attached flat to the card blank.

Next layer I cut a piece of White Card stock  to 6,75 sq then using the Graceful Pink Mica Powder and the Butterflies in Flight Background Stamp I created the background.

Sentiment :-   

Using the outer Cordoba Die I cut out a Plain White and a Graceful Pink, then layered these together and attached to the card using pads.

Using the middle die from Labels Twenty Eight I cut this out in Plain White and attached to the card again using pads.

Then using a Spell Binder Die ( the name escapes me at the moment, but I will post later) I cut out and stamped the Sentiments from the Baroque Sentiment Collection and attached to the card using pads.

To create the flowers I cut out 8 using the two smallest dies and scraps of paper from the graceful pink, moulded and curled the petals then glued together.

Next I cut out 2 fronds using Petite Vinery and attached all these to the card.
Finishing Touches   

Using Graceful Pink P.V.A.   added pearls to the centre middle die and Graceful Pink Twinkles around the sentiment. I then added a small Dazzler to each flower and finally added Stickles to the petals.

                                                                                  Happy Crafting
