Faith and Hope

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I have arrived home safely after a busy couple of days in Leeds, I hope you are all well and have been enjoying the nice sunny weather we have been having.  It is nice to be home and I had lots of lovely parcels to open too.

Today's card I have used an Iris topper from the Kew die cut topper set from Kraftyhands. The meaning for the blue iris is faith and hope and symbolises eloquence. 


8 x 8 Scalloped white card
First layer is gold pearlescent card
Second layer is Core'dinations card which has been embossed using Die'sire Emossalicious Regal Swirl.
The topper has been matted onto gold mirri card which has been die cut using a spellbinder die
The bling across the card is what I bought last year on holiday in Turkey.
To finish off I have added a sentiment, feather and stick pins which have been coloured with my Copic's

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
