Totally fabulous

Here's my fourth card in a row for the Winnie & Walter Share the Love Week featuring Essentials by Ellen. I think it's safe to say that I love the products from both companies, which is why I have collected quite a few of them. I tend to buy them in bulk during the Black Friday sales LOL.

As before, I started with a few left-over bits from previous cards. I managed to cut the Totally sentiment (Essentials by Ellen) from what was left over from my distressed panel for this card, and then the width of my panel determined the width of my white panel onto which I stamped a flower and some leaves from In Bloom: Anna's Florals (W&W) using a light green dye ink (Going green by Studio Calico). I die cut the Fabulous sentiment from the same die set from a snippet of cardstock that I had coloured using the same green ink. It so happened that my panel fitted perfectly onto this grey mat (Journal Card die set by SugarPea Designs) that was left over from this card. I layered all my elements onto a white card base and my card was done.

  3. Me again Marianne, was so intent on replying to your mail that I totally forgot to thank you for joining us at Penny Black and More challenge with your elegant card.

    And looking at my comment above see the spelling leaves a bit to be desires, my biggest problem with the keyboard is getting fingers to land on the right keys.
