Now on to my creation!!

I really enjoyed using the springy colors and could not wait to use some of my new K and Co. Sweet Nectar paper.  I just love the colors, shimmer and glitz.  I used the Daffodil tags set and the tag die from Our Daily Bread Designs. I used the colors pink, yellow and blue for the challenge. The ribbon is May Arts Pink Silk.  The gold glitter paper is from American crafts.  The button is from Michaels (Recollections).  The corner is cut out with a Spellbinders Floral Accents die.  The card is sewn with gold thread (you may have to click on the photo to see it). The lace is from Wild Orchids.  The pleated ribbon is from a RAK from my dear friend Sabrina.  Thanks Sabrina!

Card Recipe:
Paper: K and Co. Sweet Nectar, pink, American traditions gold glitter paper
Accessories: ODBD Tag die, Wild Orchids lace, pleated ribbon, Spellbinders ovals, and my Grand Caliber
