Using the Twirling Vine die from Memory Box, I traced around the edge and cut the image to fit, then using my FS glue, glued it to the vine frame and card base.

I cut out several of the extra pieces supplied in the kit and mounted those on foam dimensionals.

To give the sentiment a scroll effect, I rolled several pieces of matching scraps around a paint brush and glued with a dab of FS glue, then gently formed the scroll.

May23 I added Baby Pink, Lilac, Violet and Ultra Fine Sage Flower Soft sprinkles using FS glue. 

That fan is over 50 years old, brought back to me by my brother, from Korea, when he was in the Army. I just remembered it and thought it so perfect for this set!
