Purple Pleaser. . . . . . . . .


Good morning lovely blogging chums. Hope this finds you well.

Another busy few days at The Pond. Lunch with Mr L, another friend and Wooster (as I call Wendy - Spanish Crafter) on Monday. Had a fabulous Indian meal and the company was equally as fab!!!
Then website orders, stock deliveries, shopping, washing and a cemetery visit. Good job I'm feeling quite well at the moment. Back at the doctors today to get blood test results to check iron, B12, Vit D, Thyroid and kidneys. Fingers crossed everything is settling now.

Now, its back to one another one of John's show samples. This is an 8x8 card, so quite a biggy.


Ingredients
White and dark purple card
John Next Door Butterfly Corners stamp (available on my website)
SB Adorning Squares die
SW Ara Mini Gemini die
Hobbycraft corner punch
Memento Dew Drop inks
Teeny bling


To get the white filigree layer, I simply cut the Ara die out of the card in a square pattern and the outside edge for it too. Creates quite a pretty layer.


I did my dib dabbing with the point of the Dew Drops again to get the shading on the flowers and leaves. I have no idea why that white band has appeared on the bottom of the photo. I think it may have been when I added the blog strip. Me and technology.......who would have thought I managed to build a website lol!!! And thank you all for keeping me busy with it.

Hopefully, I should be going to Stoneleigh craft show on Saturday, after GP qualifying naturally lol!!! Its the Malaysian GP so I can't miss that, especially as it won't be held there from next year.

Enjoy whatever you are doing at the weekend and be good.

    Love this wonderful card and your design looks so regal with the purple and white.
    Beautiful stamped corners also.

    Still I sjhall ponder along weekly and buy it all slowly.
    I posted my card with John's embossing folder the other day before the MAWTT Challenge one.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
