70th Celebrations

Here's another recent make using a pre-coloured LOTV image which was matted and layered onto Spellbinder circles. The butterflies on the right-hand side were cut using Tonic Butterflies & Blooms - Ringlet Rest.

The ribbon, fabric flower and gems were from stash. The flower centre is a pretty enamelled butterfly brad which I think came from The Works. The sentiment is from a Hunkydory kit which was a magazine freebie. Numbers cut using my Cuttlebug Olivia Alphabet dies.

I'd like to enter into the following challenges:

The Ribbon Girl January Challenge - Pink
Sister Act - Challenge #89 - Anything Goes
Scrap & Craft challenge #1 - Anything Goes

Thanks for looking!

First card of 2015

and I had hoped to get this post done sooner as the card was made and handed over on the 2nd of January - bit of a first for me!!

Anyhow, this was a commissioned card for a couple who got engaged on Christmas Day.

For the main image I used a LOTV Romance cute square. Then Dovecraft and some of my new LOTV backing papers, all matted onto Centura Pearl hint of silver cardstock. I punched the heart border with my Martha Stewart punch. The roses are from Wild Orchid and the ribbon/gems from stash. The 'Congratulations' sentiment is Papermania - cut into a tag using a die that was a magazine freebie. The round sentiment is from LOTV and cut with Spellbinder dies. Flourishes were cut using Marianne dies.  I also glittered the heart topiary and added Glossy Accents to the wellie boot and watering can.

Box decorated with a Nellie Snellen Multiframe Heart die
