Can you see the New Elements?  I just love the Elegant Faceted gems.  Did you see what else I did with the Square Vellum Doilies .  I used the Doily as a stencil, and then used that same doily in the card.

Now is the time to vote.  Thank you again for your support.

Here are the measurements that I used to make this card.  Note i added another layer to the card in the video.

Petal Pink:  5 ½” x 8 ½” scored at 4 ¼”, 4 “ x  5 ¼”

Pool party: 3 1/8” x 4 ¼”

Water Colour Paper: 2 ½” x 4”, scraps

I also used a Blender Pen to Colour with Ink pads.  I think the video really shows the whole process best.
