Hello and welcome...
Today's card is a 6" square black card

I used one of a set of three dies by Elizabeth Craft Designs to create a border and I cut and embossed this 4 times in silver mirri card.  I glued these into position around the card

For the next step I cut and embossed one of the stitched flags die set in silver mirri, then stamped a sentiment, from my stash, onto black card, die cut and embossed it with the next smallest die in the range then adhered it to the silver flag.  I added mounting foam to the back

Two of the 'wispy fronds' from a die set were also die cut and embossed in silver mirri

I used some pretty tissue paper to create the 'sweet William' flower.  I folded the tissue paper over several times prior to die cutting it.  Separated the layers of tissue and glued them together to form the flower.  The tissue paper was actually wrapped around a purchase I made and when I saw it I knew I could do other things with it than wrap a gift!
