Under the Brolly

Good evening crafters and followers.  Hope you are all well.

Today's post was made for a friend who having a very busy time in her life at the moment.

I started with a plain white 8x8 card, matted some red card followed by some gold pearlescent card followed by the white card which has been embossed with a crafters companion embossilicious embossing folder, a particular favourite of mine.

The stamp is from Sheena's latest set and I have used gilding flakes - lancashire rose from indigo blu.  Die cut using a plain oval die and matted it onto an oval scalloped die in gold mirri.  The flourishes are from cherry lynn designs and are also gold mirri as is the flower which was a marianne die.

Thank you for stopping by and viewing my blog and for any comments you choose to make, I do so love your opinions.  Do take care.  See you soon.
