Something different!

Good evening everyone!

I hope you've all had a lovely weekend!  Thank you all so much for visiting my blog and taking the time to leave comments.   I love blog hopping and visiting your blogs to see your stunning creations! 

Well today for the first time I've actually use a topper on my card instead of a coloured in stamped or digi stamp.

These toppers have been sitting in my drawer for just under a year and I think she is just beautiful.  I got them from create and craft last year sometime but have never used them. They are from kameo cards.

 This is an landscape card from which I matted and layered the base and then two other different size layers with DP. 
I used silver peel offs to use as borders. 

I made the flower on the right hand side with paper which I got the tutorial from desire , you can find her link a few posts below this one.

Die cuts I used were from eBay already cut and are from spellbinders, Martha Stewart and joy crafts dies. 
The lace and other embellishments are from my stash and the sentiment is stamped from a stamp set I have.

It is my birthday a week today and I'm finally getting my grand calibur !! I cannot wait lol.  

Have a lovely evening , will be back tomorrow blog hopping lol.
