Good Tuesday Morning all
Hope you all had a good weekend and the weather was fine enough to enjoy some time outdoors. We managed to do some things in the garden and the veggies are growing madly.
While writing this message I am looking out of my patio doors to 1 squirrel sat in the nut tray and holding onto the hanging nut feeder for a nut then sitting down in the nut tray again eating her prize. I've added a hanging basket full of peanuts to the feeding station and the doves have come in pairs, one sat in the hanging basket and the other sat on the edge waiting for their turn. It is quite a busy bird cafe, it's so lovely to watch.

I first made a matt of Black, periwinkle and gold card, and then made a slightly smaller layer to put the main focal point on.
I cut the Nobles pierced ornate dies to make a frame, and then used the mustard gilding wax to make the frame look a bit aged. Then cut the ornate part of the Noble rectangle and also another frame in periwinkle as a backing to the ornate cut. Hope this makes sense. I stamped the sentiment onto the left over card to the frame and covered it with double sided sheets and put Ranger stickles, clear rock candy on it for the sparkle. I cut 2 of the petite arched adornment dies and attached top and bottom of the frame. I made a few sizes of roses coloured with Weathered wood & Wild honey, and made a couple of butterflies that were in my butterfly stash.
Hope you like this weeks make.
