Did you see my new personalised watermark from Cardabilities. Oh yeah...ever first DT term and ever first personalised watermark...am all the more joy :) Thank U Karan Gerber, am in love with your awesome sketches and so the watermark!!!

Coming to the card, Used Spellbinders - Curved rectangles for layering on a base white CS. The diecuts are sponged using spun sugar and mustard seed DIs when in dies itself to have a neat sponged border.

Did you noticed my new Spellbinders _Foliage die. That is the new one in my craft stash. The leaves are from those dies and again i sponged with crushed olive when they are in dies itself, to get a defined look.

IBS Australian Nature stamp set is used for those butterflies, which are heat embossed in black Zing powder and sponged with Rusty hinge DI.This stamp is also my new craft stash.

IBS Sentiment is stamped on the Spellbinders banners and ribbons die and and they are also sponged with spun sugar DI.

Few pearls here and there as accents.
