Using a Bold Sentiment

Today for my Dies R Us Design Team card I am sharing a card using a bold sentiment die. I just love this die by Penny Black.To see how I made the background be sure to check out the video.

Here is the card  made. I used a background from my stash but I did film it this time:-) I used Gina K Sweet Corn cardstock for the frame Sue Wilson Designs - Belgian Collection - Bruges  and the top layer of the sentiment Penny Black - Just For You.

I cut out the Penny Black - Just For You out of Onyx Black and Sweet Corn. I offset the top layer a bit to show the black.

I embellished the bottom right corner with one lily from  Impression Obsession - Dies - Lily Trio  and positioned behind the 3D lily. The large lily is from y flower stash. Dies R Us has a similar die Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 12PK - Flower, Lily by Susan Tierney-Cockburn


 My Lily from my stash but this one by Sizzix is similar
