Filigree Card.

Another new shape for you.
this one is  called a Filigree card.
Not been  able to show before as this was 
part of a swap which has now been received
by my partner 'Merry'in Oz.
We had to send 2 cards with stickers on.
I nearly got stuck (sorry about the pun) on this one
as I don't have many stickers and then I remembered 
some sheets of stickers by friend Lesley had given me. 
This is the first one that I made.
I used a Spellbinders die for the shape which is hinged at the top.
Christina has a good tutorial  for making these.
The stickers element are  the sentiment  by Anita's
and the embossed flowered tag by Papermania.
Lavender bow had already been tied and was in my stash.
I didn't think the card needed anything else. 

I used SU card stock  for the linnings and front
and used my corner rounder for the edges
