I am in love with the Spellbinders Parisian Accents border die at the moment, after using it on the Halloween frame card a few posts ago and decided to create a card using it as a border frame for the card base...
...I started with a 14.5cm square piece of white card and attached 4 border die cuts, cut down so that they were 5 designs in length, then used the corner die with a bit removed (see below) to join the corner pieces...
Bells : Blender, Cool Grey 1, 3, 4 & 5 (I've lost my no.2!)
Ribbon : Pale Blossom, Pale Pink, Cocktal Pink, Dusky Rose
Leaves : Lime Zest. Lime, Pear & Olive Green
Flowers : Blue Pearl
I punched out the small blue flowers and attached over the top of the image ones, then added a Marianne swirl to the top left and bottom of the bells...
...I finished off with some wide lace (which has been in my stash for donkeys ages!), cream satin ribbon and bow, and of course, a few pearls. I love the elegance of this card and am really happy with the way it turned out! As always, thanks for dropping by, Lisa X
