Emerald

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I have had a lovely day today, my crafty friend Lou from l00pys craft creations has been for a couple of hours and we have had a good catch up and she has been rooting around in my crafty goodies.  Don't worry I checked her bags before she left LOL.

Today's card I have used Emerald topper from the Love and Hope die cut topper set from Kraftyhands.  Did you know that the Emerald is the sacred stone of the goddess Venus?


6 x 6 square card
First layer is Core-dinations So Mod card in green 
The second layer is from First Edition Isabella paper pack
I have wrapped some green sparkly ribbon around both layers before matting onto the card.
I cut out the gold frame using Spellbinder Fleur de Lis Square die 
The topper I have added green gems and to finish off added the sentiment.


Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
