That corner flourish....... and a CAS card

Lots of questions asking me who made the die in the wedding card below... it's a Cheery Lynn, 'Romantic Victorian Flourish' - hope this helps and am sorry it's taken me a couple of days to get back to you all.....x
Quickie share for today - had a busy day yesterday playing all day and have today extended a lot of nervous energy watching my beloved Liverpool FC play the Manchester 'enemy'!!LOL

Used a few of my larger scraps for this  - hence the different size instead of my usual square card!

The embossed panels are layered onto pale green  and the gap in the middle was covered with a piece of pale green polka dot paper!

The stamp is by Papermania - I coloured it with Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint distress inks, and a teeny spot or two of Spun Sugar then used Glossy Accents on the leaves.

The small green leaf was from a flower stamp set and cut out from another scrap of the backing card.

The stripey ribbon was just enough (and I mean JUST!!) to wrap round and tie a little knot.
Sentiment is fast becoming one of my favourites as I think it can be used for all kinds of things and just finished it all off with a few pale green pearls.
