Here's a card I made last year and forgot to blog. Amazing what you find when you're sorting out your computer files!

I started with an 8x8 scalloped card blank and used lots of my LOTV goodies. The papers are from the Bonnets and Bowties pad and go really well with the Wild Flowers Art Pad image. I matted them onto a pale green shimmer card and rounded all the corners. Sentiment is from the For You Circular set. 

The flowers and the two dragonflies were cut with my Cheery Lynn dies and I also used Spellbinders Circle and Timeless Rectangle dies.  The gems, card candy, bakers twine and ribbon were from stash as was the sweet butterfly brad used to secure the ribbon.

Bright & Sassy (very)

Something a little different from me today. You may need sunglasses! This is the card I made last year  for my son's girlfriend. I really like the colour combo but my DH said he wasn't keen! Anyway 'L' was very pleased with it and that's what matters.

Image is Scruffy Little Cat - Perry - and has been coloured with my ProMarkers - plenty of glamour dust added - and then matted and layered onto Spellbinders Timeless Rectangles. I matted the white rectangle onto a cut and embossed pink rectangle then drew around the die to get the slightly larger black frame. The flowers are cut with a Cheery Lynn Daisy die and the leaves are also by Cheery Lynn - Ivy Strip.  The bunting is a La-La-Land die which I shadow cut. Sentiment is LOTV and was a magazine freebie. Handbag charm is from stash as are the gems and ribbon. Butterfly punched using an old punch from Hobbycraft. The background DP is LOTV Bonnets & Bowties.
