Hi and good morning to all my talented blog friends and visitors.
Well it's Sunday morning. 
I hope you all had a really good day yesterday.
THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments.
I really do appreciate everyone.
You are so kind to spare the time to visit me.
My card today is one I finished yesterday.
I got inspired by Sue Wilsons bog a few days ago.
One of her creations set my mind working on my own 
version of hers.
It didn't come out quite as wanted but hey I'm pleased with 
what did turn out.
Here it is.

Now the inside.

The ingredients for this.
A4 White card made into and 8x8 card.
Matted with lime green card stock, and then I used some 
white card stock and cut out my Venetian Mask and the 
Venetian Corners.
I then distressed the whole white card with peeled paint
distress ink using the Venetian Mask as a template for the 
I spritzed it with water and mica powder and let it dry.
I then put glitter glue all over it in swirling motions.
I then distressed the mask and corners and glitter glued them.
I love the shade they came out with glitter glue on top of the
peeled paint distress ink.
I put the mask and the corners back into my card.
I added a bow and one of my home made pearly pieces in 
the middle, some flowers and the flourishes from the 
Venetian Motifs.
I hope you like it.
Have a wonderful crafty day everyone.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

Good Morning Jenny,
Love, love, love this card, what a fantastic job you have made, like the Zingy Green.
I think this was the only die I did NOT buy, might have to have a re-think
Have a Great Day

Morning Jenny, I love your card, the colour is fantastic, very fresh and zingy. I tried to double click on the card to see the swirls of glitter glue but it only brought up the top inch of the card, the inside was full size but the front was just the top inch, any ideas ??
I love the venetian dies, I have these but haven't had time to play yet, that's my problem, not enough hours in the day ha ha. I must say the insides of the card are gorgeous, you pay such attention to detail, and the insides are just as beautiful as the front is.
Have a lovely day.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
