For my latest card I have made a aperture with my spellbinder die, the paper are from Serif 'Picnic In The Park' stack.  I have used my Elisabeth Bell stamp, and coloured with promarkers.  Used floral ribbon inside the card, and punched flowers, from the coordinating paper range. The flourish & leaf die is my fav Magnolia Tilda.  Embellished with a few gems, and Stampin up sentiment.

Feeling a bit poorly at mo, actually feels like a pair of golf balls have got stuck in my throat :( - I am sure a packed afternoon of cardmaking will take my mind off them !!

I have made this card for my friends wedding later on in the year, and was really pleased with the way it has turned out. I have used a 12"x6" card base in blue, but the actual card front is 5" leaving a 1" folded border, with a ribbon inserted through.  Using my Cherish stamp, then heat embossed in silver.  The flower was punched in vellum, and inked at edges, with a beautiful gem embellishment in the centre.  Thinking I will be trying it in a few other colours, to see the results.
