Happy Sunday everyone!
Wow this weekend certainly has gone quickly. My dad asked me to make a card for a work colleague who is celebrating her birthday at the end of the month. He asked for something especially girly "with all the trimmings" and this is what I came up with. It's definitely a departure from my usual style, and I was worried I went a bit overboard, but in the end, both my dad and I were happy with the result.
The designer paper is from Sugar and Spice Studio, called "Chantilly". I used the polka dots, and the stripes pattern.
The die cut is from Mpress. The oval black felt frame is from the Jenni B Collection and is embellished with rhinestones. The roses are from I Am Roses, and are make into a spray using beading wire in a tutorial I watched by CreativeKelly4rmCali (Link here). They are accented using Diamond Stickles. I made a bow using black seam binding and white tuille, and there is also some pretty fuchsia coloured satin ribbon from American Crafts there too.
The scalloped border punch is from EK Success, and is accented using white opal Liquid Pearls, and there is a black feather hiding in the left corner.
I am entering this into the following challenges:
