Tangled trellis twisted easel

Hello and welcome to my blog,
The card i would like to share with you today is from Tonic studios mini strip die set that was the POTD last week on Ideal world with jodie, A little twist with this card today i added the chalkboard die and stamp set just to show you that all your tonic dies mix and match and are  so versatile so never be afraid to mix and match your different sets.

Die sets used: Tonic Studios
Tangled Trellis mini strip die set
Indulgence chalkboard Birthday wishes Die & stamp set
Entangled Trellis Bellus Buttercup
Entangled Trellis Delicate Daisy

The card is a 7"x7" twisted easel card the ribbon is used as a stopper,with the Tangled Trellis i created a frame & stamped the chalkboard with a grey ink pad i often use a grey tone when i dont want the centre  to stand out so much, so the eye  focuses on the centre but you then dont  miss the detail in the frame and the finishing touches of the flowers.

Thank you for taking the time to visit today
Until next time
