Morning all its friday againg this week as gone by so fast. I love this die as it is extendable.  I think it looks great in the simple cream and black. I used Antique linen disstress ink to highlight the embossing. I cut it out and the I expanded it which I found that it was easy to match up. I stamped my sentiment on to cream card and matted it on to black card and cut a folk at one end.I mounted it on the diagonal across my card. I then tied a large black bow and added it on the bottom left corner of the card. I do hope you like it it is such a great die to work with. Debs xx
