Good Sunday morning everyone....

I started with an A5 card and scored it to make an A5, horizontal card

I used 2 of the stitched oval dies to, firstly, die cut the larger oval out of the card front, then the smaller die to die cut the second piece from a separate piece of card that was also the same size as the card front.  Once die cut it was adhered to the card inside

The sentiment, I used 2 different stamps, was then stamped and heat embossed 

I used some of the lilac patterned paper (I recently used this paper on the envelope technique for the silver wedding anniversary 'mini, mini album) for the flowers and leaves

When the flowers were assembled, stamens inserted and glued in place I added the leaves

I then used the NUVO aqua shimmer brush that I showed you in the video yesterday, to add the subtle gold shimmer effect on the leaves and flowers.  I must have been sitting at a different angle for the sun to catch the shimmer because it is much more subtle than it looks on the card!

To complete I added NUVO Glitter Drops in 'Holiday Cheer' around the flowers and leaves.  These also look reddish on the photo compared to how they look in the flesh!
