Today I wanted to share with you a mixed media Mother's Day card I created using these fabulous dies from Die-Namites Dies.  The Spring Doily & the Leafy Branch die


I added Gold Embossing Powder to the Leafy Branch dies to give them more texture and sparkle.  I love how they stand out against the background and give a royal feeling to my floral spray. 

Here is the finished card.  

I have prepared a start to finish video of me making the card.

Now, head on over to  Lynne Forsythe’s blog  to continue the hop.

Thank you for joining our blog hop!
