This is what I did:-

I cut the 8 x 8 card blank to 8 x 6 then cut the first layer of white card stock to measure 7.75 x 5.75

Next I used Grey/Blue Gilding Wax around the edges before attaching flat to the card blank.

2nd  layer
white card cut to 7.5 x 5.5
then I  used the  Chic Floral Background stamp and Grey/Blue Colour Cloud to create the  background, then attached flat to the card.


Next I cut 2 layers using white card

1st layer 4.25 x 5.25 and edged with Grey/Blue Gilding Wax
2nd layer 4 x 5 and embossed it using the embossing folder ( and inked edges with colour cloud)
Then attached to the card using pads to give dimension.


Sentiment

Using plain white card stock and the St Lucia Die I cut this out and once again edged it with Colour Cloud.
Then I used a Sentiment from the Chic Floral Occasions Sentiment Stamps and heat embossed it using Silver Shine Embossing Powder.
This was then added to the card using pads.


Flowers and Finishing Touches

Using a sheet of plain white card I sprayed it with Grey/Blue Mister Spray and cut an assortment of the flowers out, which I shaped and attached to the card.

I then added Glacier Ice Glitter Jewels to the flowers and leaves  and also around the edge of the sentiment.

Finally I added the pearl corners and a small dazzler to the centre of each flower.
