Hi, welcome to my 'happy place'....

On sorting one of my many craft boxes I came across this card, without the centre die cut piece.  Even though mirror card is involved (you know how I can never get a true photo with mirri) I love aqua colours and decided I would finish the card for today's post

It's a 5"x7" top folding white card base with a smaller panel of an unidentifiable colour, although I've obviously inked the edges with a bluey/aqua ink pad, then added the aqua paper.  The stars on this paper are a silvery gold whilst the paper used for the centre piece has white stars

The die is 'Botanical Swirls' and is one that has an expandable pattern, so you can make it larger if you so wish, and I used this on gold mirror card Ribbon was added before it was adhered to the base card
 I used the top die (photo at the bottom) for the centre piece and die cut it from the aqua paper

I also found several tiny 'with love' sentiments in the box and, with this one, I made 'fish tail' cuts to the sentiment and the same on white vellum, adhered the sentiment to the vellum and added a tiny aqua dot either side on the vellum.  These dots were the off-cuts from the die
 I added two strips of the same paper to the insert on the card and another strip on the envelope
