Pretty in Silver and Pink

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I have a different sort of card to what I usually make.  I have used Spellbinders dies and the sentiment is a Glimmer Hot Foil plate  from Becca Feeken.  Hot foiling is fabulous for quick and easy sentiments and designs.  The flowers are from Tattered Lace and the background paper is from the local Warehouse Stationary.  The silver card has not photographed well but it does look a lot better in person.
