Alva Roses at Dies to Die for

Eeek I must have been more tired than I thought last night, because I scheduled my Dies to Die for post on this card and completely forgot to schedule my this is a 'little' later than it should have been lol

Oh well, better late than never.

I had a play with one of the new range from Bildmalarna 'Alva'  . These are a bit like grown up versions of the Mimosa stamps I think, anyway they are all gorgeous (Tracy has the full range in stock) and I found it VERY hard to choose just one.  But in the end I settled for this one, Alva Roses.

Isn't she gorgeous?  Links to products are listed at the bottom of my post and will take you straight to the item in the store.

I used some fab papers from Inkidoo, the good news is that they're on sale!

A side view of those wonderful butterflies, love those dies.

I didn't put too many embellishments on my card, because the butterfly dies are so stunning they don't need much else, just a few pearls to highlight, a strip of pink lace and some smaller flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I cut the border into pieces so that I could place it around my frame, I love that it's so versatile that you don't have to use it just as a border, though it does make a very pretty one.

Well that's it for me today, hope you like it. Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday  and I'll see you again on Thursday for my Marvelous Magnolia post...I'll remember to schedule that one...honest!!  : ) xx


  1. Another very pretty card from you Linda. The colours are great. My mojo has flown out of the window this week, I haven't made a single thing :(
    Hope you enjoy your evening.

  2. It happens to us all sometimes for one reason or another, I have weeks where I'm very slow to craft when I'm having to 'push' for it. This week I made 3 cards in 2 days, cos the creativity was just flowing so I didn't have to sit and ponder for hours lol. It'll come when it's ready :) xx

  3. Dear Linda, you keep amazing me with your cards. This one is so romantic and sweet and the colors remind me... strawberries with cream (even though I am allergic to stawberries, I love them) :)
    Have a sweet day!
