Wedding Anniversary

*******************

This is the first play with my lovely new Radiant Rectangles nestie dies from Country View Crafts. I can see I'm going to get plenty of mileage out of this set :)

The pretty rose BP is a freebie from Far Far Hill.  I love this, it is such a delicate pattern.
Apart from the bottom one, all layers are affixed with foam tape/pads, creating excellent dimension.
Pearls from stash

There is rather a lot of depth so I've made a box - well, it is for a special anniversary after all.





Pretty homemade flowers, coloured with diluted DI's  - I am so proud of these...and the leaves have a coating of Crackle Accents.




A parchment butterfly quickly made this morning as my b/fly punch was too small and die too big .
