Die R Us

Lots of layering for today's card that it's going to cost me a bomb to send out internationally.  However, if it's for a good friend - why not.

This card involved lots of die cutting.  The border is from spellbinder Scalloped Border Two.  I alternated each layers with white and kraft and on the second layer, I zig-zag machine stitched it and the top layer is dry embossed.  The sentiment is from Verve and the die cut is from A2 Filigree Delight.  All white edges were lightly distressed with TH Victorian Velvet.

As for the flower, I found some fabric washi tapes and I taped them onto a punched circles cardstock and wrinkle them.  Thereafter, I distressed the edges with TH Antique Linen.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges : Dies R USPenny Black and MoreAll Sorts Challenge and The Kraft Journal.

Weather has been glorious that DH and I made a cycle tour of about 24km and along the water close to our area.

Thanks for dropping by.
