Walking into the Future

Hello.  Welcome.  Over at Poppystamps they are showing off their new releases and I was really taken with a card by Mary Mac which used a background die at an angle.  So I thought I'd have a go using Memory Box Diamond Background die.  This is a card for a Confirmation.  In Norway nearly everyone gets confirmed when they reach 15.

I cut the die and backed it with a double sided sticky sheet and then added glitter.  Bling.  Then I offset it on a bright pink panel.  The stamp and sentiment are both from Kort og Godt, stamped in VersaMagic Perfect Plumeria chalk ink.  The flowers and the little pin wheels are cut using Cheery Lynn BAF#3 Embellishments die and I added some enamel dots.  Then I mounted the panel on a slightly darker shade pink card.
