Wonderful, that's what you are.

A special card for a special friend. This is the first time I have used this beautiful die, shame on me. What a beautiful flower die from Memory Box. Delicate and one I could have keep the negative pieces for for not but I decided to go the easy look for this card as it went well for a Challenge that is on. I first coloured a piece of Multimedia paper with the new Tim Holtz Distress Oxides in a rainbow of colours and then cut into the panel (mind you once you make these beautiful panels all you want to do is look at them). these inks blend so so beautifully.

As you can see I have cut from two different sections to include a wider range of the colours and because odd numbers always look better than even I doubled up on the small bud rather than have four in a row. I liked how it looked. I die cut a piece of black card stock with a rectangle stitched die.


Added to the front of the card and glued the flowers in place, Then finished off with my die cut gold mirror cardstock 'wonderful' and some wee little gems and the rest of the sentiment stamp inside.

I'm with you on the DOX panels, Aileen. I love looking at them and find it difficult to cut into them but your flowers look wonderful with the variety of color on them, especially on the black background.
