Squares as diamonds again

Hello friends
Thank you for the lovely response to yesterday's Friday Die Day.
It seems we all liked the Swallow and Heart die set.
With that in mind I've chosen to share this card featuring  bird
today and also the simple process of placing squares as diamonds.
The dies used are Victorian Sapphire dies from Create and Craft,
I love layering these up.
It is also that paper pad from Craftwork Cards again, Toile de Jouy,
I think I've reached the end of it now!

I discovered the silver pearls recently too - loving those!
Today I'm in my cabin putting together some special kits and also giving
Stanley (my teddy bear) a face, I promise to show him to you all soon.
I've really enjoyed making him, so much so I think I'll start another one!
Take care friends.


  1. Hi Christine,
    A lovely card again today, and the paper from Craftwork Cards is lovely. I look forward to seeing Stanley when he's finished.

  2. Hi Christine
    Lovely card again. Can I ask where you found silver pearls please.They would be great for use wedding cards sometimes instead of cream or white.
