A WARM SOOTHING CARD



Hello Everyone..

A long weekend here in NZ for  Queens Birthday..yay!!
Three shorter days in row and very chilly...so a good weekend to stay indoors and craft.

This is a vintage/ Shabby Chic card I came up with playing with a gorgeous image from the Graphics Fairy..



Isn't she lovely..she is called "Dancing Colonial Miss"

The little fat bumble came from The Graphics Fairy too..I fussy cut him out to join the Dancer.



A close up of the image and her bumble bee....and also the string of pink pearls from my holiday stash box.







The side view...I had chosen other papers but found a couple of challeges requiring PINK..so out came my new pink papers from Cre8tiv 8x8 glitter stack.

The beautiful cream 'tatting lace' from 'My Lady' in the background...



Added flowers and vines  and the paper doily is a pad I found on my travels already cut into a scallop shape and butterflies on every sheet...so pretty..so decorated inside with one of those as well as adding one to the card front.

Challenges to enter....
