Birthday Fairy

I treated myself to a Tonic sentiment die set and this is its first outing. I used a LOTV Cute Square fairy image called 'On Tiptoe' which I cut with a Spellbinders circle and layered on to this gorgeous Cheery Lynn sunflower doily die. I absolutely love it but it does need to go through my machine 3 or 4 times. It's worth it though! I used an 8x8 scalloped card base, some Dovecraft papers and matt gold mirri card. Gold ribbon is from stash.

LOTV 10th Birthday

Lili of the Valley are celebrating their 10th birthday in May and their latest blog challenge is to make them a birthday card. Here's my make (and it also fits in with April's Ribbon Girl challenge).  It's very lilac - LOL - hope you like it.

Decorative front made with Martha Stewart PATP punch

I used one of the Fun-Time Teddies images and added Glossy Accents to his shirt and plenty of Glamour Dust to her dress and headdress. LOTV sentiment matted and layered with Spellbinders to match the image matting and layering. The flowers are punched from Dovecraft papers using  a mix of two punches; the smaller one is Nellie Snellen and the larger is Martha Stewart. All covered in Glossy Accents and finished with a gem centre. I tied the butterfly ribbon into a double bow and finished it off with a lilac dazzler from Creative Expressions. The three tiny butterflies are made with an old punch which I think was from Hobbycraft.
