Best Wishes

Hi all

I hope you all had a great weekend. 
 I am going to the Make It show in Farnborough on Friday, so I'm looking forward to picking up some crafty goodies and hopefully a bargain or two.

Here is todays offering

 I started with the PVA glue in silver, pink and purple and used the scribble technique on a piece of coconut white card from Creative Expressions. I created  a frame from some purple card from my stash. I used the Tattered Lace Kew border to die to go around the frame and mounted this on to a piece of pearlised baby pink card
 The flower I created from Spellbinders Cinch and Go dies which I inked with Tattered Rose distress ink. For the foliage I used a die from my stash (not sure what it is called) I inked through the die with Shaded Lilac Distress ink.  I then  I snipped into the die cut  it as its quite large to create a variety of smaller leaves.
 The sentiment was cut out with another Tattered Lace die from the Eltham range and backed with the pink pearl card.
I finished it off with pearls in each corner and created another mat  made using Tim Holtz piercing ruler.
Thanks for popping by.

    Love the background you have created. I remember Sue Wilson doing something similar ages ago and it looks very effective.
