Enchanted Dreams

Morning to you all,

Just a quick post from me this morning as I have a terrible headache!  I don't usually suffer with headaches but this one is a killer.  I have taken 2 Ibuprofen and that usually works, fingers crossed.

I had scheduled this to post today at 11.30 but I thought I would add to it before it posted and of course to enter it into some challenges.  I hope you are all well and having a crafty day.  Well would you believe we actually have blue skies here in Warrington, so I have put out hubby's seedlings for some fresh air!  I hope he appreciates my looking after his babies!!!!  I didn't put them out on Monday and he was most put out and told me off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Me I don't do gardens, I am rubbish, everything I touch dies :(.  I mowed the lawn once, put the mower back in the shed, next time hubby came to use it it wouldn't work!!!! How fortunate for me :)

Recipe & Method

1.  Base card is A3 scored to make an A4 card. 
2.  First layer is a piece of embossed mirri card from my stash that I have had for ages.
3.  Added white ribbon down one side before adhering mirri card down.  Tied ribbon into a knot and added to floral hat pins and a heart button.
4.  From the Enchanted Dreams CD which has the artwork of Josephine Wall which I bought from Joanna Sheen which you can purchase here I printed off this gorgeous Image, isn't she just gorgeous.  The flowers are pansies.  I printed the decoupage sheets off onto pearlescent paper and it feels beautiful as well as looks beautiful.
5.  I have layered the decoupage onto Navy Blue cardstock, I have also done this with the sentiment which says "Just for You".
6.  To finish off I have added blue pearls to the corners, swirls and under the topper.

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxx
