LILAC AND BLACK CARD

Good morning blog friends and visors.
I hope today finds you all fit and well, and managing to fit some
craft into your day.
THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments on my work.
I feel very honoured  that you choose to visit my blog.

This is my card for today.

click on the photo to enlarge the picture.


It's my fav size of 8x8.
I matted the card with black card and then lilac.
I did the round wreath with the Special Touch Doily Mask,
and cut away parts so you can see the black card.
I added some flowers made from the Rose Creation Die.
Then finally I cut out 2 Scolloped Edgeabilities and laced my
ribbon through them.
I added some black pearl pva glue dots around.
I was never very happy with this card, but what do you think.

Thank you again for your visit.
I hope you all have a fabulous Friday.
Lots of crafty love.   JENNY.
