Teal Dress

Hi all

I hope you have all had a good weekend. Its been really cold here and we have had all the season's over the past two days.

I hope all the Mothers out there enjoyed a fantastic day yesterday and you were all thoroughly spoilt.
I had a lovely time with my two daughters and their partners,

Here is today's card.

 I stamped the Fantail dress from Creative expressions and coloured it with watercolour pencils. (My new favourite colouring medium)

I used Sue Wilson Ornate Pierced  Noble dies to create the frame from teal card.
I cut the Gemini Phoenix die from Sue Wilson to cut into the white card  without actually cutting it out of the card and mounted this on to teal card.

I finished the card off by using pearls in the corners and in the centre of the flower.

Thank you for popping by and if you leave a comment thank you.
