Hi everybody.  I hope that you are all enjoying the same beautiful sunny weather that we have been having for the last number of days.  My card today is made from a Tonic Die which although it is quite a nice die I do not think there is very much you can do with it.  Normally I like a die which I can use in different ways but this die I find to be quite limited.
                           
                                         

Thank you for taking a look.

Morning Marie - a really luvly card anything with flowers and butterflies is a winner for me and luvin the bow xx I understand what you mean about the die but I am sure you will come up with different variations of embellishments/toppers which will make it look different - the weather here this morning at 7am was glorious (I was hanging washing out) now @ 10am it is very overcast and a little cool but at least it isn't raining xx GailT xx

Gorgeous card Marie-Louise, love your fab bow. I do love my trellis die and I love how you have placed your pearls so must remember. Take care. Flora xx

Dora said...

Wow this is stunning MarieLouise. Love the background and that pretty rose at the centre xxx

pinky said...

I think its just gorgeous Marie-Louise, the die is so effective as a background. If you are selling it on I will buy it lol :)

Lisa M said...

That's odd that a die wouldn't lend itself to more of your creativity. In time maybe you'll find more uses for it. I think it's a very sturdy and fabulous design and the embellishments make a beautiful Summery card.
Hope you're doing well and thank you so much for sharing this Marie- Louise.
hugs to you,
Lisa xx
