Purple Silk

Hello all, this is my card that is on the Classy Cards 'n Such blog
and don't forget to sign up for my blog candy above!!

Hi, Diane here with you today on the Classy Cards 'n Such blog.

A few weeks ago Beverly added a beautiful new line of paper to her store called
Let me tell you, this paper is FABULOUS!!
It has such a silky, smooth feel to it...I loved working with it!

I started by using the paper for my card base.
I added a white Embossed panel "Dots" by Crafts Too
To add interest to the panel, I used the NEW just released Cherry Lynn Designs "Fancy Corner Cuts #1".
Aren't they pretty??  There are 4 different sets to choose from!!

I then cut Cheery Lynn Designs "Mesh Border" , cutting it from the same
gorgeous "So Silk ~ Fabulous Purple" paper.  I just cut it down to fit my panel.

On top I added the beautiful die from Memory Box "Quinn Flourish"
I made my Roses using Cheery Lynn Designs "Miniature Roses".
using the color the Roses a soft, real look!

I tucked in a bit of greenery using Cheery Lynn Designs  "Wreath Strip".
Adding a purple sheer bow completed my card.....thank you for "visiting" with me today!!
