Blessed Friday with Neat and Tangled!

Hi everyone!  I have another Neat and Tangled card to share with you today.  This one uses the Gardenia Blooms Journaling Card die designed by my good friend, Miriam Prantner (love that gal:).  As the name implies, the die is actually the shape of a 3X4 journaling card (Project Life card), but I wanted to show you a way to use it in another way.  

I started by die cutting a couple of the journaling cards in white card stock.  Instead of using the cards whole, I cut out individual flowers or flower groupings.  Then I backed each flower grouping with some vellum.  (To apply the vellum, I just glued it to the back of each die cut and then cut around the edges)

Because the vellum flowers were so light and delicate, I wanted a really bold and bright background.  I used Distress Ink in Abandoned Coral to blend over the entire card front.  Then I spritzed it with a bit of white mist.  The beautiful script sentiment is from the coordinating Gardenia Blooms stamp set.  The last step was just to add my flowers with a few sequins and acrylic raindrops.  

Thanks for stopping in and have a wonderful weekend!  And thanks to Miriam and Danielle at Neat and Tangled for letting me play with such beautiful crafty things:)  

Much love,
