Flowers & Flourish.


This is the second  white on white card that I sent to my  swap partner last month. I have some really lovely embossing folders so decided I would use one  here. This one is from a set called 'Flowers and Flourish #6 656978 by Sizzix. The die cut is from Spellbinders Label 4 set. The flourish is  also by Sizzix  from their Decorative Swirls Set  656323.


I made the flower using  Spellbinders 'Vintage Floret' HCD 727 (which is very similar to the embossing folder pattern) and as it was being sent abroad kept it fairly flat and just used a small flat backed pearl for the centre. The sentiment is a word die from Britannia.

Entering into the following challenges:
Pixie's Crafty Workshop #86: Use up your snippets ( white card on flower, flourish, words)

White on white is always so elegant. This one scored an A+ for all the lovely elements you chose. That S/B #4 is one of my favorites of all their dies - so versatile. Absolutely loved your flower, as I always do. Great EF to use to create such a beauty. TFS
