Dare to be Fabulous!

 Good Afternoon! Hope you all are having a fabulous weekend. We decided to make today a relaxing day and just kick back. I just thought I would get in a little crafting before my husband got up this morning, but I am just now getting it posted. I am late in getting to the challenge over at Papertrey Posse. We were challenged to use our favorites and whatever project we would like to do. I had a hard time deciding since there are so many things that are my favorite. I decided to go with dies since I actually do love them. They sure do make alot of things easier in crafting. I also did some heat embossing which I am starting to really like it.

I started our with Select White for my base. I love the look of the cut borders with the dies. I used the Victorian Lace border die to achieve the look. Since it actually cut it away from the CS, to attach it to the card I taped it and then used some scor-tape to attach my ribbon above it. I use the Limitless Layers 2 1/2 die for my background of my flower with the Royal Velvet. I cut a doily with Select White. (I love these!) I found that the points of this doily fit in every other point of the Limitless layer. I wanted to have a varigated flower so I cut several with the Beautiful Blooms #2 in the largest and smallest. I made the flower with the largest first and then I tucked the smaller one inside. The sentiment is from Big Bold wishes. I stamped it with versamark in black and using clear embossing powder. While it was still warm I sprinkled some Prisma glitter to give it some sparkle. It sure is hard to photograph, plus it just gives it hint of glitter. The colors I used were Raspberry Fizz and Royal Velvet. The leaves were cut with Delightful Dahlia leaves from Spring Moss CS and stamped with Ripe Avacado.

Have a great rest of the weekend,

Liz, This is a very pretty card. I love the Victorian Lace die too. It gives a very sophisticated look to a card, especially one with a white card base. I didn't realize that 2.5" Limitless Layer die was so perfect for the new doilies. It really does look like it was made just for it. Love the colors you chose and the flower is very creative.
