This Thank You card went out to my good friend Barbie Jo who gifted me with this lovely corner die set from Spellbinders called "Gold Elelments One"
My inspriration came from Queen Barbara who has a wonderful creative and varied gallery with lots of beautiful cards. Here is the card I chose to case: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...;ppuser=140882
Her corners are embossed, mine are dies.
We both have a flower (different colors) in between our corners pieces.
She has foliage, mine uses the leaf flourish from the same set as the corners.
I put my sentiment on the inside
It was great spending time in your gallery!
This is also for a really fun challenge called
NBUS Challenge #1
"Anything Goes" http://www.djkardkreations.com/2014/...lebration.html
Go check it out!
In this challenge you must use a NEVER BEFORE used item. A few years ago I was on a mission to get this flower that Marianne Designs makes. I am ashamed to say that this is the first time I have used it on a card. I used dimensionals in between each layer of the flower and I played with the edges to get the effect I wanted. I was very pleased with how it turned out!The actual card that I cut the corners out of (and then placed the pearlized green behind it) is from a VERY old pre-embossed collection of boxed cards. I have never used this particular one. SO it is my second NBUS. The pattern is called "Brocade". I would love to have an EF that actually looked like this does on this card.
I am not sure I was able to capture how pretty the pearl paper is IRL.
Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look!

Oh, Peggy, this is gorgeous! The shimmery minty green with the white is very dramatic, and your dies are so beautifully arranged! I keep pinning these, because they are gorgeous - and someday I hope to try another myself! You surely inspire me! Hugs!

Peggy, this card is beyond gorgeous! Having just ordered this die set (you enabler, you!), I now wonder how you got the embossed design on the diagonal part of your card. Did you do that with the same set, or is there another secret yet to be revealed? ;-) Thank you for participating in this week's QFTD and thanks for your sweet words. I am overjoyed (pun!) with the honor.

Peggy, your card designs could easily be featured in upscaled boutiques - you know the kind. Beautiful laces and linens, perfumes, all the things that make a woman stand still, breath in and say, aaah! The pearlized green paper shows through in a very dreamy way - reminiscent of the green butter mints at weddings. In fact, I always think of lovely wedding cakes when I see your designs, Peggy. Uh oh! these cards are sugar-free right? *wink* Beautiful card!
