Hi everyone, I hope you all had a lovely bank holiday, and that the weather was kind enough not to stop you having a good one.
I can't believe with the rain we have had, have made the trees and shrubs burst into a life again throughout the garden, it's just amazing what a few heavy down pours can do for the garden. Our snowball tree is turning white and the blue bells under one of the trees are stunning.
This weeks card was made using Phil Martins Sparkle texture paste, and birthday verses, although I cut them up to accommodate the die but that is the beauty of stamps you can cut them to make your own sentiment. The only tip is, just cut it once don't go back to round or clean edges because you will never line them up again to make the original sentiment. Hope that makes sense.
I really appreciate all your visits to my little blog land, and hope you will leave a comment and visit me again. Thank you
Anyway here goes!
Hope you like this one too.

First I matt and layered Black silver and blush card and embossed the blush card with the Rambling Rose EF by Sue Wilson. I made a smaller matt with the same combination.
I then cut a piece of card 51/2"x51/2 and used the touch of class mask, I taped it down first and spread the Cosmic Shimmer sparkle paste over it. Lift off carefully and leave to dry for a couple of hours. When dry I cut the border die from the Portuguese collection 4 times. I managed to keep the 3 middle fancy pieces and cut either side of them , leaving the little tear drop shape to hook over the front of the card and attached on all 4 sides. I then cut the centre of the card out with largest plain cutting die from the Scandinavian Collection, Oslo, Each die after that I cut out the centre so that my sentiment will be set back in a deep aperture. I used Sue's New Peony flower dies nad maidenhair dies to create the flowers and attached some voile just to finish it off.
Thank you again for your visit, it is very much appreciated, and hope to see you again soon.
Take Care All
