I started off with a Basic Gray A6 side opening landscape card. I punched the border with Tempting Turquoise CS and added 1" white circles behind the flower elements. Oh my word, this is a beautiful punch, I LOVE it! I received a stamp set that I'd purchased from an eBay seller and she also sent me two other stamp sets in error, they should have been sent to a buyer in Australia. I told the seller and offered to ship them to the correct person. After I'd done that the seller gave me a credit to spend in her eBay store and I chose this gorgeous SU! Lace Ribbon Border punch. The swirly, leafy shapes were cut using a Marianne Creatables die. After attaching the die cut shapes I added the teeny punched flowers. After punching the flowers with the Itty Bitty flower punch, I used an embossing stylus in the centre of each flower to make them cup shaped. I added the sentiment element and finished off with some turquoise gems.
I then cut a white panel for inside the card, added a turquoise leafy die cut shape and used grey and turquoise markers to ink the sentiment. I put a turquoise punched strip down the left hand side of the envelope. I punched 1/4" grey circles and added them to the flower centres.
I think this is a very striking and interesting colour combo. I might well make a Christmas card in these colours. I'll probably not ever love grey in my card making but maybe I'll use it a tad more often!
