Die Cut Dreams Challenge #84 Spring Garden scene.



Good morning everyone, hope you had a good weekend. It's time for a new challenge at Die Cut Dreams Challenge but before I reveal it I would like to thank everyone for their fantastic new baby girl creations. It made for difficulties when choosing our favourites!!!

So this fortnight we would like you to create a

SPRING GARDEN SCENE.


Now here is something funny/odd you decide but every time I look at this card I smile and I love it even more each day!!!! I have used an image from a Fairy Doodles set which I must confess I won in a candy over a year ago!!! Can't believe I haven't got round to using this until now.
I have coloured the image with watercolour crayons, glittered the wings and then distressed the edges of the die cut. The patterened paper is from Smirk and is called Love and Friendship. I have cut all the shaped pieces using the Spellbinders nestability Labels 8. The piece behind the image is centura pearl card embossed using a Victoria and Albert Hanoverian folder.



The lace was from a local Haberdashery shop and I have threaded through some ribbon to coordinate with the rest of the card. The flowers and leaves are from Wild Orchid crafts (I think!). Finally the sentiment is from Lili of the Valley - Dreamy Days set. Oh and by the way have you seen the sneaky peaks of the new stamps due out on 9th March - overdraft here we come!!!! Nearly forgot to say the background is stamped using a couple of stamps from the Clearly Hand Stamped set by 3 Birds - can't find it for sale anywhere -sorry.

Anyway I can't wait to see what you come up with and if you would like some more inspiration please check out my teammates creations. Their links are on my left sidebar.
