And now for something different, second attempt!

Good sunny Tuesday morning Bloggers, I hope all is well where you are...hugs

I have already done this once, then pressed the wrong button and lost it all, with a lot of blue air over Borrowash!!!

I have gone back to one of the styles I used to do many moons ago for this one.
I have 4 x A4  boxes, each with 17 little boxes in them full of leaves, flowers, balloons, stars and so on ad infinitum. All of them were punched and diecut from scraps probably 5 years ago, and then forgotten. I came across them and decided they had been inloved for lopng enough so I have brought them out of exile!

This is the first card made using some of them, and I will be making more over the coming weeks/months.

As Usual, the base card is linencard folded and cut to my favourite 7x5.
Next up is the pearlised panel embossed with Couture Creations Chainlink fence,
Thern comes the frame, which is the negative from a Spellbinders diecut.
The leaves are are, if I remember correctly, a combination from Spellbinders, Leone Em, maybe Xcut and ?
Flower cut with Tim Holtz Tattered Flower die.
Shading was rubbed in lightly using gilding wax.
I am fairly pleased with it even though my faves are CAS cards.
Beacuse of the faffing about getting this onto my blog, it may take me a day or two to catch up with your usually wonderful uploads, please bear with me :o)

Done that myself more than once Jackie and even worse forgot to add the schedule info and it's gone live to early - just like yesterday over at PB&M.

How nice to find a box of prepared goodies and what great use you have made of them.

Apols for the lack of visits, been a bit under the weather.
