Pretty Vase of Flowers for You!

Hello Dies R Us Friends!
Darlene with you today and for my inspiration share today, I have decided to create using some of my newest Sue Wilson dies and my favorite color ... PURPLE!

The dies I have used on today's creation are:

Sue Wilson Designs - Finishing Touches Collection - Queen Anne's Lace
Sue Wilson Designs - Cathedral Background
Sue Wilson Designs - Finishing Touches Collection - Hobnail Vase

From time to time I go through my scraps of designer paper and start cutting strips to create background panels for cards vs throwing them away.  I have used one of those panels today for my background.

I've used the smaller of the two oval dies for the opening in my Sue Wilson background panel.  Then, I used the larger oval die to cut my decorative panel and adhered it to the back of my cathedral background panel.

I then cut the same size panel as my Cathedral Background from shimmery purple card stock and adhered to the back to 'pull the colors together'.

Once that was completed I decided to add some sparkle to the outside edge.   To do that I simply used Scor-tape around the outside edge and sprinkled Glamour Dust on each side.  Being sure to burnish it with my finger to remove all the excess glitter.  You can use the glitter of your choice for this step of course!

Now it's time to assemble my vase of flowers . . .

After die cutting the Vase and two sets of flowers, I decided to add some sparkle using touches of white glue and the same Glamour Dust glitter I used around the outside decorative panel of my background.

Though a bit difficult to see in the photos, it is really pretty in real life!

Next came arranging the flowers in the vase.  I added dimensional tape to the back of the vase then simply laid each stem into the vase as my arrangement came together.

Adding a little piece of dimensional tape to the back of each flower, my overall design was popped up and beautiful!  I'm sure this card will bring a smile!  LOL ... I know I'm smiling!
