Time to Celebrate

Good morning. Thank you for all the kind words you have left for me and the best wishes for speedy recovery. The OP went well but I didn't realise that I would have the pain in my hand that I did on Friday evening - but thankfully it was less painful last night and today I can even use my fingers that are poking out of the mahoooosssssive bandage to type with - so I might even be able to have a little crafty play later.

Today I would like to share a card with you that I made before I had my hand done and it showcases some of my gorgeous new Spellbinder dies that my lovely hubby bought for me recently.

I am loving these dies - they are so intricate and pretty.
The image is one of my favourite new LOTV images - coloured with PM's
I matt and layered the image using Spellbinders Label 20 and then framed it.
The pretty border and corner flourishes are from the Doily Accents set as is the matt for the sentiment.
The scrummy ribbon for the bow is from East of India.

Here's a close up of the image in the frame:

Challenges I would like to enter:

LOTV - Celebrate
Clearly Inspired - Punches, Die Cuts, Cut Outs
Stampin for the Weekend - My Favourite Things
