Hello and good morning everyone on what is quite a windy day and the rain has now stopped. It's lovely having that wind blowing through my windows though, so nice and refreshing.

The card I have to show is being entered into the following challenges.

Craft for the Craic  August Challenge #7.  A craft item you have never used before.
Spellbinders D-Lites. TIGER LILLIES.

Brown Sugar.  Challenge #109.  ANYTHING GOES.

Creative Corner.  5th Friday of the Month. ANYTHING GOES.

Simply Create Too.  Challenge #69.  SHOW US SOMETHING NEW.

Spellbinders D-Lites.  TIGER LILLIES.

Charisma Cardz.  Challenge #18.  WEDDING ANNIVERSARY.

For a change I have used a coloured cardstock as the base for my card. I then used a TRELLIS DIE for the open work mesh background in pink card.
The borger across the card has been made using WHITE & LILACL PEARLISED CARD. The lilac has been punched down both edges with the Martha Stewart OPTIC DOT punch
The FLOWER has been constructed using the Spellbinders ASTER FLOWER dies. I have used paper from my box for the largest one and then the other layers I have used paper from the 
First Edition SWEET OWL paper pad. In the centre I have added a beautiful 
MARBLE EFFECT BUTTON in purple and black ( which was also part of a crafty goodies gift bag from my friend Jacki) Thank you sweetie.
The craft item that I have never used before is what my husband bought me yesterday and is a  
Spellbinders D-Lites TIGER LILLIES DIE. I have cut two of those and placed behind the Aster Flower for effect.
Finally to complete the look, I have added a sentiment banner which says

Thank you very much for stopping by, I appreciate it very much.
Happy crafting.
Love Sandra xx
