Pink Posies and Pearls

Evening All

As promised here is my second post for today.  Totally different from the first one I posted and thank you to everyone who commented.  I have had a heck of a morning after I posted my first card.  Facebook and blogger where not playing nice for me today so ended up turning computer off and pottering about colouring in some of my digis I had printed off.  Here is one of the cards I have made so far today.


The base of the card is A5 which I have punched all 4 corners using my rounded edge punch.  I then used a piece of K & Co papers and adhered this to the base of the card.  Across the centre of the card I attached lace and ruffled this.  The second layer is pale pink pearlescent card which I have embossed using one of my Cuttlebug folders then removed the top layer over the embossing and used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in spun sugar.  I printed the image which is Laura Flower Girl drawn by Elisabeth Bell.  I have cut her out using my Spellbinder die Lacey Ovals.  I have laced pale pink ribbon through the loops and coloured Laura in using my watercolour pencils.  I have added pearls to the embossed areas on the pale pink card.  The feather and flowers are from my stash.



Thank you for stopping by today
Hugs

Stunning card, Linda. I love the contrast between the traditional background paper and the pretty soft pink topper and image. Very clever combination.

Linda Darling,
This is just beautiful! Look at all those lovely, elegant touches you have added! I love a little glamour. ;) Come on back to my blog, Dear Friend, when you have a chance. I have the rest of my (4) hops up! I always appreciate your comments and look forward to them so very much. It sounds like you've been quite busy yourself! I hope I get a little break soon so I can actually send out proper emails and cards to all my friends. I have a busy blog hop month ahead of me as well as the two design teams and orders for Valentine's day! I'm excited tho! Trying to push myself a bit and it's working well so far. Hope all is wonderful with you.

XOXO ~ Amy Jo *Kiss Kiss*
