Best Wishes

Hello! Today I have a card featuring some of the
new winter dies.

The card base is cut using the Scalloped Rectangle Reflections Boutique set. I added texture to the white portion of the background using the Petite Hearts Embossing Plate. I added some trim from the Expandable Tiny Borders plate, and Lady Kate Edger for lace.

The flower cluster was created using Build a Flower #3 to create the yellow flower.Cutie Fringe 4 makes the most adorable spiky flowers, shown here in burgundy. The Daisy Strip has three different sizes on one die, making cutting so much quicker! Two different sizes are tucked into the bouquet. Foliage is from Build a Flower #3, Rose Leaf Strip, Stacker Flower #1 Leaf, and Olive Branches. To the bottom right corner is the new Best Wishes Phrase, and a Mini Butterfly fluttering about.
Thanks for stopping by!
