Marianne's Creatibles Dies

Hello and Good Morning everyone especially the folks from the Gingerwood Board where we are having a thread on these dies.
This photo is too light but I just wanted to show how I used this particular 'leaf branch' on this card. I have had to cover up the personal details on the front as this card is only being collected today and I don't like to post something which has not as yet been given to the recipient.
I like how the leaf branch is making a lovely 'swirl' at the top and the bottom of the card...I've also trimmed a couple of them to fill in as well. I have not adhered all of the leaves down...I like to see them kind of natural looking which brings more life to the arrangement...they are fiddly to work with mind you but I do like the look...think you've got the idea that I really like this!!! The flowers are made with cream jacquard ribbon (Offray) and an organza pink centre. It is presented in a cream box with two gold sprays of leaves and in a tissue lined gift bag with more sprays on the bag.
Until next time take care!
