Hi everybody, welcome to the new year.
 Today my project incorporates something old, something new, so I decided to have a play round with my New D-lites dies from Spellbinders and mix them in with some of my older dies.  There is now a large range of D-lites to choose from , for this card I've just gone for these 2  The medallion Four and fantastic flourish Three.

This is an very easy card to make ,
you will need the following

6'' White Scalloped card blank
Cream, Pink and White card stock
D-lites Medallion 4 die
D-lites Fantastic Flourish 3 die
Tim Holts 'Spiced marmalade' orange Distressing ink pad
Marianne Butterfly dies
Die-namics fancy flourish die
Cream paper rose
Gold stickles
Pearl and crystal wire embellishments
1.5 inch round sentiment

 step 1
Cut a square from white card slightly smaller than your card blank and dust the edges with Tim Holts 'Spiced marmalade' orange than mount onto your card blank. My scalloped card blank was about 15 Cm's (6inches in old money) so I cut a 14cm square to fit inside

Step 2
Cut 4 Fantastic flourish die-cuts and 1 medallion 4 out of pink card stock. I find using some grease proof paper over the card you are cutting out a god send as it makes the card stock release easily from the metal die when its cut. Dust over gently the outside of each with some Spiced Marmalade distressing ink to add a little colour interest.
Step 3

 Place your 4 die-cuts on your card one in each corner, with the quarters in the middle forming a circle,glue onto the card making sure to secure the delicate flowers to the card  and then place the medallion 4 die-cut  in the middle of the square to cover the joins.   when this is complete add some random gold dots with your gold Stickles glitter glue , so your card has some added sparkle to it whens its finished

Step 4
Cut out some butterfly dies, 1 large and 2 smaller in cream and silver and Matt and layer onto each other and dust with some holographic glitter and add your paper rose and flourishes to the lower corner and a sentiment in the middle and your card is complete. 
 Many of the products used to make this card can be found on the J and C Creations website xx
