Having bought the Spellbinders Captivating Squares Die, I came across your tutorial on you Tuesday Tutorial page of your Blog and couldn't miss the opportunity to attempt to make the card.
I used White card for creating the Hinged card, and then added a slightly smaller layer in a fairly dark dusky pink, and topping this with a smaller layer in pink patterned paper.
Your instructions were very clear and easy to follow.
I used the same dusky pink card to cut out sizes 3 and 4 of the Captivating Squares die, 4 times, and layered the shape into pairs, offsetting them to form a star shape, using cosmic shimmer dries clear glue to hold them together.
I then used foam squares to fasten the 2 star shapes together to create the lacy centre for the card, as you did.
With the no 3 die I cut out another layer in white and offset it to the back of the pink layer left over from the original set of die cuts, creating a white shadow effect.
I attached this layer with wet glue. then I cut out the no.2 die in white and added a little colour using Distress ink in Fired Brick before stamping my sentiment in the same colour.
Using Sue Wilsons Complete Petal Camellia dies I made the roses, colouring the shapes before forming the petals. I added a little sparkle with Diamond Stickles.
The leaves were also from Sue Wilsons Complete petals camellia dies.To complete the card I added pearls to the 4 corners. The finished card measures 6ins x 6ins.

This is such a pretty card and the shade of rose pink is perfect. You should be proud of the card that you have made and anybody would be happy to get such a beauty to grace their mantleshelf
