Lacey Tiers for You

Hi blogging friends,

I've been working on some things behind the scenes, which hasn't left me much time to post.  I'm still here and have a card to share with you today using the JustRite Lacey Tiers dies.

The white base card is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" with an embossed floral front.  I then cut two frames using the Lacey Tiers borders and staggered them.  They were glued together.  The center stack is lily paper with a piece of Whisper White left over from the Lacey Tiers border.  I added a Prima Fairytale purple rose to the center.  Pearls accent the circular motif.

Since this was for a 40th birthday, I stamped the number 40 in Pale Plum and embossed it.  The Spellbinders Labels One were stacked and popped up.  A triple loop bow was made from seam binding with a rhinestone brad in the center.

The inside sentiment was stamped in Adirondack Purple Twilight and embossed with clear embossing powder.  After the layers were stacked, I added an elegant flourish cut from Recollections Purple Passion paper.

I finally saw my first robin over the weekend.  Spring, get here soon!

Sending blessings your way.

Wow so pretty! What a treasure for your friend :-)
We saw a robin too which is shocking since we still have so much snow- but I guess they know when to come back!

You make the most beautiful cards, woman! I love this one. I have to brag for a minute - we have lots of robins, stellar jays and even a woodpecker (today). It's almost 60 degrees - practically balmy! ha ha ha
