Friday Die Day

Hello friends

I'm back with Friday Die Day!
The blog posts are a little erratic at the moment due to my eye 
surgery but I should be back on track soon.

I'm featuring a few dies and a Glimmer Plate this week.

I've used my Glimmer machine, gold foil and ivory card
to create this design.
Once foiled trimmed to a rectangle.

An ivory card base and matted with a gold mirror card mat
and Anna Griffin card - this is a new collection of single sided
AG card to the website. 
I use my trusty E-Z Runner Grand, this really speeds things up!

I've cut two, one from gold mirror card and one from ivory.
Affix the gold behind the ivory offset slightly for a drop shadow.

I then matted the foil design onto a rectangle of gold mirror card,
wrapped around a piece of peach ribbon and affixed to the die cut.

Placed onto my prepared card base.

Next - the flowers, cannot have a card without a flower!
This is Cinch and Go V.

I'm really quite in love with these daisy design flowers.
Cut from watercolour card and coloured with distress ink.

A little gold brad to the middle.
The leaves that come in this set are very sweet too.

The finished card.

We celebrated my parents Diamond Anniversary yesterday 
and I'm doing a blog post this weekend with photos.
Thank you to those who have already send lovely wishes via 
Facebook etc.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

Take care friends.
