Good morning friends, today is Day of Giving Friday. I have new card to giveaway today and I simply love, love, love the pretty sentiment by Quietfire Design. I was playing around with a new set of dies Spellbinders Floral Berry Accents and the tiny little accent flowers sent me off looking for a sentiment that referenced flowers . . . check!
The card base is 5-1/2 x 7-1/2.
On top of my card base I added a panel 5-1/4″ x 7-1/4″.
Next I added another panel to stamp my sentiment on sized 4-5/8″ x 5-7/8″ and underneath the panel I added Spellbinders Heirloom Oval cut in half and Spellbinders Deco Duality trimmed to be the header piece.
Next I added a frame cut with Spellbinders Pierced Rectangles.
I finished up with Spellbinders Floral Berry Accents using the single foliage pieces and the separate cluster of flowers.
I finished up with a simple one loop bow and several pearls for flower centers.
