Lazing on a Sunny Afternoon

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

An early post this morning as off to see my parents.

I hope you all have a wonderful day
Thank you all so much for your visits and comments I really do appreciate you all!

Today an Elisabeth Bell topper from Hobby House.

Step by Step

1. 6 x 6 white square card with corners punched with X-cut corner punch.
2. First layer is green polka dot card and I have matted and layered  floral paper.
3. Before adhering them to the base card I wrapped cream ribbon around the bottom half of the card.
4. I distressed a doily with DI tea dye and the topper was also distressed around the edges before adhering to the card with foam pads.
5. I made a double bow with ribbon and added a pearl gem to the centre.
6. To finish off I added a small gold dragonfly and the birthday sentiment.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
