A warm welcome to all my new followers - it's lovely to see you and I hope you'll drop by often!
After a very busy and long day on Saturday I had a mega 'chill out' yesterday and spent all day making cards and finishing all the half done ones! This card fest produced a total of 6 completed ones so I was feeling very pleased with myself.
I also cleaned off all the bits from the desk so I am now sat here with the finished articles and a desk that OH says loos like we've been burgled..........
Here's one to share for today -
I finally got stuck into the 5th Avenue papers which must have been here for over 6 months...!
This was quite a quick card to make and was inspired by one seen over on Pinterest.
Covered some card with the papers then attached some pearls to the scallop at the top right. The heavy lace is from my stash.
I used a K and Co die cut tag and covered it with some of the papers, and added some more lace and a string of tiny pearls, finishing with some pink satin ribbon through the tag at the top and three more pearls to the top left.
I punched out a butterfly, gave it a quick dusting with Spun Sugar DI and some glitter and once in position on the card stuck a pearl flourish from the bottom leading to the pearl string on the tag. I added a small pearl heart button.
Stamped a sentiment in Vinatge Sepia on the bottom and then co-ordinated the inside with the same papers.
The 'flower' was made using more papers from the stack, cut out with varying sizes of scalloped edged nesties, distressed, misted with water, scrunched, secured together with a brad then given a glitter treatment! The leaves are from a Marianne die.
