Sassy's Chrissy Prom Girl

Good Evening Crafty Friends and Followers

Whew where has today gone already!  I have to admit that I have got a lot done today so far so I am pleased about that.  Thought I would post earlier today as I have got a lot of DT work that I am in the process of making and want to get them done and dusted by tomorrow so that I can spend the rest of the week and weekend playing, I have some new digi's and just waiting for a parcel to arrive with some more crafty goodies.  I will tell you all about it at the weekend.

Today's card I made a couple of days ago, I wanted to use other colours than the ones I usually go for.  I am really pleased with how this turned out and loving the colours.  Would you believe that the flourish at the bottom of the card is actually greaseproof paper which I used to help cut this intricate die out so used this instead of what I planned to use.  I think it looks great with the background paper and subtle too.

Cream 6 x 6 square card.
First layer is from First Edition Boho paper pack
Second layer has been cut out using gold pearlescent Spellbinder Oval Die,
The 3rd layer has been cut out using Spellbinder Decorative Oval.
I have printed the image onto Stampography and then coloured using Copic Ciao pens and cut out using Spellbinder Oval.
The flourish is from Spellbinders called Fantastic Flourish One.
I have added a yellow bow with a dazzle gem and 3 stick pins.  I have added pearls to the flourish and a sentiment from my stash.

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
