Clematis - Crafting from the Heart Challenge

Good morning crafters and followers.  It is a beautiful Monday, well it is to me as I am on holiday for a week.  Staying at home and hopefully getting in some major crafting using all my new goodies I bought at the NEC last Friday.
My post today is my DT sample for this weeks brand new challenge over at Crafting from the Heart Anything Goes/Spots&Stripes.

 Sue Wilson Lattice 3D die
Spellbinders 5x7 matting basics die
Spellbinders Botanical Swirls die
5x7 white base card
pink pearlescent card
white pearlescent card
pink brad

  1. I started with a 5x7 plain white base card
  2. I matted some pink pearlescent card using my spellbinders 5x7 matting basics
  3. I then cut out my spellbinders botanical swirls die using white pearlescent card matting that over my pink card
  4. I coloured my image in using the copics listed above, cut it out, shaped it and placed that onto my card with some pinflair
  5. I finished off making a bow out of green card - some off cuts out of my bit box - using Sue Wilson's new lattice 3d bow which is delightful as I am useless at making bows with proper ribbon.  I secured this together with a pink brad.
This was an easy card to make really but I do hope you like it.
