Best Dress

Hello again! Can you believe it's the 1st of July? Where on earth has this year gone? I can't believe that I need to start thinking about making Christmas cards again soon (yes, I know it's still only July but I'm determined to change the habit of a lifetime and make a start on them much earlier this year!!) Anyways, back to the matter in hand! Cos it's the first of the month, it's time for a new challenge over at the Cupcake Craftroom. This month, the team had the most fabulous 'Flourish' papers to work with - you really must check them out because not only are the designs gorgeous but the soft colour tones are right up my alley too!!! And the theme this month is a nice easy one for you all too.....'Lots of Layers'. Here's my card:
Image - Lili of the Valley coloured with Spectrum Noirs.
Papers - 'Flourish' Cupcake Cards and Crafts.
Sentiment - Whimsy stamps.
Flowers - Woodware (large green one), Wild Orchid Crafts (all the others!)
Punches/Dies - Whimsy mini postage stamp die, Memory Box Madera corner, MS butterfly punch.
Other - Whitewash coredinations cardstock, Making Memories distressing tool, Pearls from stash.

Isn't this little girl just the absolute cutest?!?! I do love this colour combo - I have said it before....the saying goes 'blue and green should never be seen' but I think it looks pretty darned good together! I have scuffed up all the edges using my distressing tool but looking at the pic, I'm not sure you can see it too well (it might if you enlarge it?!)

I'm also going to enter my card into the following challenges:
Right, I think that's all from me for today - I think two posts in one day is enough, eh!?! I hope you like my card, I love reading any comments you might choose to leave, so thanks in advance! And don't forget to hop over to the Cupcake Craftroom to check out the other gorgeous DT cards and join in with the challenge, you've got a whole month!! Bye for now...............xx
