Chic Fleur

Good afternoon my crafty friends and followers

I hope the weather is good where you are.  Here in Warrington it is glorious, clear blue skies and getting warmer compared to a chilly start.  I hope to go and sit in the garden for a couple of hours this afternoon, but we will see as I have a couple of orders to get done.

Today my card is made using kits from Kraftyhands, they do some really lovely paper kits as well as CD's too.  I bought a couple at the NEC and as I hadn't crafted for nearly a week I started using the Fleur Francais in combination with the Chic Boutique Toppers.


Recipe & Method

1.  Base card is made from Centura Pearlescent A3 Card from Crafter's Companion which I have scored and made a 6 x 6 card.
2.  The first layer is from the Fleur Francais paper kit from Kraftyhands which I have attached pink lace before layering onto the base card.
3.  From the Chic Boutique Toppers I have taken 2 toppers with the same design, trimmed around the first topper and distressed with Dew Drops Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid around the edges then layered down with foam pads.  The second topper I have cut out the perfume bottle and inked the edges with the above metioned ink pad and attached this to the topper using Pinflair gel.  I then used glossy accents over the perfume bottle.
4.  I have attached pearl swirls, some roses with a spray of pink gems from my stash.

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs
