Neutrals and Concord Crush

Today Chris B and myself have spent the day with Chris G (sis-in-law).
We spent a little time talking all things Stampin Up and what we are all ordering next, did some crafting, had lunch and drank coffee (with a little help from Mr Kipling!)
We all made the basic card, then put our own little twist on it.
We used the Neutrals Designer Paper stack, and cut it into strips 1.1/2 cm wide, then wove them to make the background. Matted this onto a piece of Concord crush. Sentiment from Sincere Salutations stamped in Concord Crush onto whisper white. Scallop corner punch used on two corners only. Vintage Vogue flowers stamped in Concord Crush and cut out, then popped up on Dimensionals,a dazzling rhinestone plced in the centre of the flower. Leaves punched out using the Extra large Bird punch. Whisper white 5/8* satin rubbon inked with Concord Crush inkpad to match.
Love it!!
