Pearly Whites

Wow, here we are into November....
time to think about getting my Christmas cards and tags made....
I make ALL my own tags...I love it...
but freak out when the package is opened and the tag is discarded....
 
 
I made this gorgeous card and flower after seeing a flower made using
the Marianne icicle die on Mihaela's blog HERE....
now be prepared for some breath taking beauty when you see her blog...
it is stunning!!
 
 
It took me awhile to find the die, as it seemed to be sold out everywhere I looked...
in fact when I bought it, they had one left after my purchase....
the center of the flower is made from the die, I cut it 3 times and rolled it up
like you do most of the strip flowers!
 
I am entering this into the challenge at Joan's Gardens "A Winter Card"
and
 
Products used are:
TH Alterations Along The Edge die Snow Flurries
Marianne dies LR0128~LR0227~LR0157~LR0135

This is absolutely stunning. I love Mihaela's work and saw her flower made with that die. You did a gorgeous job with this card. I can't imagine anyone throwing it away. Thanks for joining us again this week in our challenge at Joan's Gardens.

OH MY WORD ... this is STUNNING Diane! Truly STUNNING!!! If the recipient even thinks about throwing with work of art away, I give you permission to run after them and 'beat them with a stick'!! LOL ... really just a good tongue lashing will probably work just as well!
I'm packing up for my craft show tomorrow and plan on resting this evening since it will be a very early start and a long day!
Hopefully I'll get a burst of energy on Sunday and create a card for Joan's challenge too .. although I don't know why ... this is THE WINNER in my book! AWESOME my friend! Talk to you soon ... wish me luck tomorrow!
HUGS from OHIO!
