On Monday I posted a card titled Ladies Day and as expected it split opinion I promised to try a version of this card without the ribbon and bow so here it is.

I decided to use the same base materials however I changed them round a little by making the paprika colour (the name core'dinations gave this card stock not mine!) to the front and the off white to the back.
I die cut the front piece using the Sue Williams Californian Collection background die ( I Know I know I keep using this and I'm afraid there is more to come!) I die cut the core'dinations and embossed it before sanding off the top layer. I then cut a plain oval form the very centre, the design really helps to select the centre on this one. I then cut a matching frame using 2 oval dies which I embossed and sanded before sticking over the aperture.
I cut a smaller oval from the off white card, a smaller oval again from the coredinations and lined them all up with foam mounting tape. The sentiment, from Waltzing Mouse, is stamped in the centre of another sheet of the off white card and each layer was cut on the edge to make each layer a little larger. I finked the front off by adding liquid pearls to the points on the background die, one of the things I love in this die ios that there are palces to place pearls, perfect for a pearlaholic like me!
To finish I simply added a felt flower (sorry Mrs D!) made using spellbinders bauble blossoms and 2 of the faux quilled foliage die cuts (double sorry Mrs D!) from Sue Wilson. This should, hopefully, give a different look than Monday. Let me know which you prefer?!?
