Seeing double !!

Hi there well its time for the fortnightly challenge over at Forever friends challenge blog !!! This time the challenge is to use two images !!! So I thought ............ an easel card !!! One for the stopper and one for the top part ! And then of course I HAD to use my flower die ......... so I had been playing and cut them out in pearl card so of course it led naturally (all because of the roses !!) to a all white wedding card !!!

I used my fabby fabby border die from Memory box (SO WANT the frostyville one but soon .... hehe !!) and embossed using a heart folder. The memory box die cuts SO well despite all the intricate bits !! It's a dream !!

I added pearls between the flowers and oh my oh my I used my new Cheery Lynn flourish die .............. ooh its FANTASTIC !!! I am so thrilled I bought it, I wondered if I would use it as I have a few swirls ........ but its going to be my favourite !!!! Hope you like it !! I just love this card, not sure I can send it !!! hehe !!
Happy crafting !!!
