Sparkle & Pearls

Good evening my crafty friend and visitors,

 I have managed to make two cards today using the gorgeous Lelli-Bot kits. Hope you like.


                                    8 x8 card stock
                                  I have coloured a backing paper from the Lelli-Bot
                                  Pure Elegance  Butterflies and Lace collection using 
                                  LuminArte's Buttercup and Blue Ice and then mounted
                                  onto mirri board.

                                 The topper again has been colour washed using the Buttercup 
                                 on the background  and Blue Ice on the dress and corner flourishes.
                                 I then added Blue Ice Gems.

                               I finished by adding  feather, flower, stick pins ribbon and bow. 
                               The dragonfly was die cut using Spellbinder Dragon Delight           
                                cut from a piece of Lelli-Bot  backing paper.


                                      A4 White Card
                                     I then added a A4 Dark Blue card to which I die cut two flourishes 
                                     from Tattered Lace and attached a lilac ribbon down the centre.
                                    Spellbinder Grand Decorative Ovals were used to make the mirri 
                                     board frames.

                                     I then added to the frame a stamped sentiment and a topper from
                                     the Lelli-Bot Radiant Butterflies pack. Pearls were attached to the
                                     ribbon and around the frames and finished with a pearl and
                                            ribbon bow.

                                                I  hope you have enjoyed your visit
                                               Until next time take care and happy crafting
