Hi Crafty Friends
I was dying to try out some of my (many!) new cheapo dies so I combined several on this class card. The oval lattice looks gorgeous, but I have to admit it drove everyone crazy, it was so hard to get the die cut out of the die. The sentiment and the filigree flowers were fine.
The bird is an old Stampin Up punch and the branch is Heartfelt creations. I enjoyed stamping and inking these to get texture that hasn't come out v well in the pic.
I wanted a massive floppy bow to finish it off, but gave up trying to tie one, and just looped the ribbon up and secured it with a brad. It proved a popular choice, so I may just give up on bows!
