Busy week (finishing off some magazine commissions and preparing for Isabelle's 4th birthday on Saturday!) but I managed to whip up a card yesterday. The sketch I used is from Wild Orchid Challenge.
The colors I used are from this week's challenge at CR84FN Color Challenge.
I hadn't starting out thinking I'll make a floral wreath on this card, it just kind of evolved. I wanted to use this fab doily die I just received from Die-namics (it's the Dainty Doily Lace Die), you can just see it behind the wreath. I really love it and I should get a lot of use out of it.
The 'Oh so beautiful' sentiment is from the Celebrating You Stamp set by Nina B at The Craft's Meow. All the pretty flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I love these little sweetheart blossoms and cherry blossoms, all their flowers are gorgeous!!! I also stamped a doily from the Dainty Doilies Large Set from Waltzingmouse Stamps in the centre. There's a little cream twill in there from The Ribbon Reel, don't forget you have a couple more days to enter the Ribbon Reel Challenge with a chance to win all those lovely ribbons.
The pretty pink rose is also from Wild Orchid Crafts. The sweet applique leaves I bought on Etsy. The pearl trinket pin I made. Underneath all that there's a double bow of seam binding.
The little bird I made using some white Fimo and a little silicone mould from Etsy. I like to leave them white sometimes and they look just as nice.
The green paper is from Prima Botanical. The paper behind that I stamped with various stamp sets including Dainty Doilies Large Set by Waltzingmouse Stamps, Happiness Is Stamp set from The Craft's Meow and some text from a Crafty Secrets Stamp set. Ok... off to buy some birthday presents and goodies for the party!!
