Peach and Mica

Hi all

A Happy New Year to you all.

 A card made from my ever growing box of left over pieces.
I am sure we all have one of these boxes because as crafters we just cannot bear to throw anything away lol..

 The background is made from a piece of white card that I covered with  an adhesive sheet. I peeled the backing off and placed my mask over the top. I dusted a selection of mica powders through the mask. I then gently peeled the mask off and added glitter the rest of the exposed adhesive.
I made a frame to go over the background and used a flourish stamp on the opposite corners of the frame with a peach ink.
The sentiment is one I printed from my computer and the dies where ones I had already cut. I think they are a combination of Tattered Lace and Sue Wilson.

A peach bow, flowers and pearls finish the card.

I hope you like it.
