Burgundy Anniversary...

Happy Wednesday,

Same colours, same dies as yesterday but a really different looking card.  For todays project I simply added the Bee Balm Background to the mix along with the smallest die from the Ovals set.

I started by cutting the bee balm background form the centre ( lengthways) form the centre of a piece of burgundy card.  I then cut the smallest die on the ovals set, which is designed to fit perfectly, at the top and bottom of the background.

Next I cut the background using the outside die as well form a piece of white card then backed this with more of the burgundy and a thin layer of black.  I mounted this over the panel cut into the card and added pearls and swirl leaves to the mix for interest.

I added the sentiment, onto the tags dies that come in both sets ( Different sizes that mat and layer perfectly) and placed this in the centre.
