How exciting is this! Oh so fun - we can't wait to see what you create, and who will be the next GD!!

Sneak peek alert, for today's card, I used a new set called Greet The Day With Gerber. It will be released along with 3 other new sets on Tuesday February 8th, which will also be the first day of the Mark's Finest Papers Blog Hop!

The cardbase is so saffron, with a layer of white, and then another layer of white that I stamped with a flower head and so saffron.

The frame was made with the Label#9 dies. The sentiment was embossed with white onto a tag from the Spellbinders fancy tag set. I love how delicate it is and it embossed beautifully! I attached the tag to the frame and popped it up.

The flower was made using 3 marvy punches. The branches were made with the SU 2 step bird punch. I sponged the edges a bit and added a flat back pearl to the center.

I finished it off with some ribbon and pearls, I really like the way this turned out!

Have a Great Weekend,
