Victorian Lilac...

Happy Tuesday,

A real celebration of spellbinders today as I threw so many different die sets at this card but I like the simplicity of the intercity of this one, if that makes sense.

I stared by cutting the Victorian birder strip into a square of wisteria card I then added one of the borders in the centre cut with the wisteria and backed in white.













Next I  cut the romantic rectangles in white and added this over the top.  I then cut an oval from an old spellbinders set I have and added pearls around the aperture.




Finally I added the sentiment and cut it out with another of the ovals.

I made up the card as shown with pearl corners and more layers of the white and wisteria.

Enjoy...
