Birthday box for a friends Daughter!!  The brief was
Pink & Silver and pretty!!!

This is what I came up with using pretty Primo Rosa
12x12 papers from scrapandcraft.co.uk 
I used a Sara Davis  lattice embossing folder on silver mirror card,
  Sara Davis lace doily die using 300gms white cardstock

My flowers are from I am Roses ( large & small Gardenia, 
white Lillies, Cherry Blossoms) I added sparkle dust to all the flower edges.

My leaves are a Spellbinders for Heartfelt Creations 
Classic Leaf die.

Summer Flora/Butterfly's

Hello my dears,  I hope you are all having a 
great week so far.  Here is Scotland we've had
2 days of sunshine, it's been so lovely and warm. 
am so hoping it continues for the next few weeks.

I'm here today to share a lovely summery card using my 
newest stamp from Prima, she is called Instachick, she
measures 5.5" x 4" so a lot of colouring surface to work
on with my Derwent soft and Artist pencils.  Think this 
must be one of the largest stamps I've ever coloured and 
I must admit it was a challenge but I loved the end result.

My card ended up being an 8" x 6" so that I could
incorporate  my  handmade Vellum flowers and leaves which
were made using Honey Doo crafts stamps and dies. 

I made the bow using WRMK envelope maker and the honey
comb die is by Tattered Lace. Papers are from Echo Park

Thank you so much for popping in to visit, I hope you'll
come back and see me again soon.
