Future Dreams

Hi folks, hope you are all well.

My post today was me playing around with spellbinders.  I have been mooching through Sue Wilsons blog for ideas, picked a layout and worked with it/adapted it.

This is a white C5 card followed by another piece of small card which I pricked around the edges, time consuming but I do so love the effect, definitely 'pinched' from Sue - hope you don't mind Sue? 

I then used some backing paper which was a freebie in one of the magazines - Card Making and Papercraft Mazazine' - I bought on the 21st March which had one of Jayne Nesterenkos stamps as another freebie.  I also embossed the paper.

The sentiment was from a set by Inkylicious which I stamped with black versafine ink and clear embossed.  This is surrounded by a frame die cut from spellinders labels and the back one has lemon ribbon wound through.  The swirls were die cut using a sizzix die, cut twice in blue and white to shadow.  The flowers were die cut using marianne dies and then stamped and embossing with yellow/gold embossing powder finished off with pearls.

Hope you like this, thank you for stopping by and for your comments.  Take care, until next time.
