Friday Die Day

Hello friends

Friday already and that means Friday Die Day.
Let's ignore that it is the 13th..only nice things today please!
This week I'm featuring Miss You Swirl, one of the new designs 
by Marisa Job for Spellbinders.
The approximate measurements are:

Outer circle: 4.75 x 4.75 in 11.90 x 12.50 cm
Inner circle: 2.80 x 2.80 in 7.50 x 7.50 cm
Letters: width ranges from 0.125 to 0.5 in 0.32 to 
1.27 cm x 0.56 in 1.42 cm in height

I firstly prepared my square white card base using 6 x 6 Matting Basics, 
lilac cardstock and patterned paper - 
the paper is available on the website here.

Die cut the decorative circle in both white and silver mirror card.
The plain circle from coordinating patterned paper - within the same paper pad.

Affixing the silver die cut behind the white to create a drop shadow.
Placing it on the card front with Crafty Foam Tape.

Here's the little flowers!
Using a combination of distress inks to create a shaded look.

I looped ribbon with twine and added lots of little flowers as if they are 
scattered over the ribbon, pearls to the middles.
Within the die set is the lettering, I chose to use LOVE
cut from silver mirror card.

Items used today with clickable links:

And if you are pinner, 
here's a picture that you may like to add to your Pinterest.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend,
I'm crafting, videoing and indulging in a barbecue on Sunday for my
lovely Mum's birthday.

Take care friends.

Hi Christine,
Thank you for my prize, I got back from holiday last night and it arrived before I went to work this morning. That’s very speedy.
Love your card today and the very pretty bow and papers.
Have a great weekend and hope your Mum has a lovely Birthday.
