"Just for You"

Several weeks ago I tea-dyed some seam binding and have been waiting for just the right card to use it. So here it is!

I'm not sure what the problem is with my phone camera but it is not taking true-color photos right now. It is either the bright daylight or I accidentally changed some settings. The "pink" print background paper (DCWV "Nana's Nursery- Baby Girl") is actually more of a coral which goes better with the tea-dyed binding.
To make this card I used Spellbinders dies "Fleur de Lis Square", "Make a Wish" & "Luscious Labels One". The flowers are die-cut using Sizzix TH "Tattered Flower Garland" and shaped with my McGill tool set. For the sentiment I stamped with my FSJ "Coffee Bean" ink using JustRite "Birthday Sentiments" & "Decorative Border Variety Set". The seam binding, lace and pearls are all from my stash. To make the double bow I made two separate bows using my Craft-dee Bowz bow-maker and sort of stacked them together and added the flower and leaves last.

I plan to participate in the following challenges with this card-

What a beautiful card, I just love everything about it! Your flowers are beautiful, the die cut is gorgeous and your seam binding bow is perfect! Love how you added lace to your bow, too. I'm also having difficulties lately getting the true colors in my pics - so frustrating! Thanks for sharing this beauty with us at Craft-Dee BowZ for our monthly challenge, Anything Goes & Include a Handmade Bow :-)
