Back to the Wilson...

Happy Friday,

After posting a run of projects made a few weeks ago I have to ask how do the professionals do it I really want to show what I have made almost as soon as it is done not wait six weeks lol.  I thought I show something that I made last weekend.  As most of you hopefully remember I admitted sinning again on Sunday well today's card is made with another of my sinful dies!

I bought three sets as I couldn't decide between the three beautiful circular dies in the Italian collection! Naughty I know!

I simply cut each of the sections in the die in alternate pink and cream card and layered them between pink and cream squares.  OK I embossed the squares to add a little more interest and threw in my usual ribbon, bows and pearls!

The centre circle die cut I have inked in a mixture of purple and green ink to bring out the beautiful roses and foliage in the die.

  10. Hola John
    A veritable beauty of pinkness, screaming elegance! Been out with Nesta for breakfast and shappin and she loved it too, as I wafted my phone over her Herby potatoes.
    The professional card bods have stunt doubles, I believe, so I'm applying to be yours when you become famous hahaha!
    Have a great day.

  11. Isn't it delicious when you get more than one die set together? I'm like a kid in a sweet shop when that happens. Enjoy your dies, the card is beautiful, and I bet we will have a run of them now.

  12. This is another WOW and I don't usually like pink and the fact that you've used it with cream and not white makes it look beautiful Very soft and calming (did that make any sense?) You do know that your sins all go on my Need List! Lol!
