Made this one just because.....

..... I wanted to play, it will go into the box until I am ready to use it.
I hope you are all well or getting there :o)
I am off to Atherstone in Warwickshire today to meet up with adopted family who I haven't seen for 8 years. They live in West Sussex, which is a tad too far to pop out for the day, but they are holidaying in Warwickshire this week so we are meeting halfway (about 37 miles for me). It will be so lovely to see them again :o)
Anyhow, on to my card for today.


I cut two pieces of plain white card to 8x8, scored one about an inch in from the edge and attached it at the back of the other.
The backing panel is DCWV put through an 8x8 Die'sire embossing folder then sanded. White centre panel is pearl card with a tiny hint of gold put through a 6x6 Die'sire embossing folder then rounded the corners.
Dies used are Marianne and Memory Box. 
I added flat backed sticky pearls from stash.
I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making it :o)

Jackie - can you help? I have broken my cuttlebug and will probably need to replace it (hubby will be checking it tonight but I think I have killed it). What would you recommend as a replacement, as I seem to recall you have more than one die cutting machine. Many thanks.

Hope you had a wonderful visit with the family. We don't have 6x6 cards as a standard measure...ours is 5x5 and still cost us extra money to mail, but I always think it's worth it. Love the combination of dies and embossing folder to give us this awesome card.

LOVE this card Jackie! Love how you used the diecuts. I have one of these dies but after I bought it, my mind just froze when I was trying to work out what to do with it. Thank you for giving me some ideas to work on :-)
