Classy Cards N Such - Hydrangea Bouquet

I am so critical of my own cards and seldom do I make one I really love, but this one, I am in love with.  I think the Sue Wilson die really gives it an elegant look.  Yes, I am still excited about the Sue Wilson Creative Expression dies.
I think you are going to see several cards in the next few weeks where I have used them.  Have I told you how much I love this die? Oh, wait a minute, I am suppose to be telling you the details of my card.  Ok, I will get back to the program.

I started off with a lavender card base and added a layer of vanilla card stock. I used lavender card stock and the  Spellbinders  A2 Filigree Delight card creator dies to cut the next layer of my card. I think it gives a card a classy look.

I used a another piece of vanilla card stock and used the Sue Wilson California Collection - Beverly Hills die to cut the decorative center of my card.

I stamped the hydrangea from the JustRite Botancial Medallions and Banners stamp set on vanilla card stock. I colored  the hydrangea with Copics. I proceeded to fussy cut the hydrangea. I adhered the hydrangea to the Sue Wilson Beverly Hills die cut. I adhered all of pieces so now we have them all on the card.

I added two silver Pearls for the finishing touch.

Thank you for taking a look at my card.
