A Birthday Card For A Friend

Last month, I was lucky enough to win a prize given away by 
Christine of  Hopes and Chances Creativity
For one week in May, Christine kindly gave away a Spellbinders die every day
her Facebook page HERE 

 I won the Swirl Lattice Panel die which is just gorgeous and can be found in the 
Hope and Chances Creativity shop HERE currently available at a sale price!

My card is based on an idea which comes on the back of the packaging.
Firstly, I covered the front of the card with some vintage floral paper. 
Next I die-cut some pearlized card twice with the Lattice Panel die, glued 
them together to create the square shape.
I then added the stamped sentiment, flowers and sprigs, finishing with
some pearls to decorate.
The products I have used are:-
Spellbinders - Swirl Lattice Panel
Spellbinders Shapeabilities - Fancy Framed Tags Two
Spellbinders Shapeabilities Die D-Lites - Sprigs
Docrafts Xcut Punch - Small Daisy
Sentiment Stamp - Magazine Freebie
Challenges entered:-
