Pure Innocence: Chrysanthemum


How exciting is this month's MFT release?! I've been missing out on some of the fun, Shan and I were away for the past nine days, visiting family and attending my sister's wedding. We had a wonderful time but it's nice to be home!

Today is Pure Innocence day and today I have a card using the November flower of the month, Chrysanthemum.


I created a large 5x5" card because I wanted to use as much of the new Crown Border Die-namic as possible. I cut the border piece from chipboard and covered it with paper. My PI girl is coloured with copics and her dress is paper pieced.

I've also used the new Oval Dainty Doily - oh how I love these designs in oval form!


Inside I shadow stamped the girl and added a sentiment from the set - love this one!
