Springtime and Silver

Hello friends

Today's card is a little similar to a previous one I created in that it uses
Swirl Lattice Panel cut from 'scratch-art' card. 

This time I've used silver.  
In case 'scratch-art' sounds like double dutch,
it is card that you can die cut and then sand away 
to reveal metallic underneath.

I've used 5x7 Matting Basics and also Fancy Edged Ovals.
The tiny flower paper was free in a magazine, occasionally I rummage right
to the bottom of my scrap box!

For the foliage it is Swirl Leaf Branch - a one piece die set
that creates all those multiple leaves on a branch, 
that really saves time!
My signature little flowers coloured with distress inks and tiny pearls added.

I have a speedy video demoing this card that can be viewed
on Facebook here.  I'm really enjoying the speedy videos,
it all has to be edited to last just one minute - 
thank goodness Elliott does that!

City job for me today, I know I've said it before but it comes around
so quickly, I'm only ever half way through my to-do list! 
I have prepared Friday Die Day though so please stop by tomorrow.

Take care friends.
