On Your Special Day

Hiya everyone, well here at last, been a fun few days, what with my son having a freak accident at school and badly dislocating his knee. Have been keeping an eye on him overnight so have had a couple of sleepless nights...oh the joys of being a parent!!
Anyway on to my latest makes.....here I have made a card and decorated a gift bag to match for any special day for example to give to a Bridesmaid or even the Bride....I have used the digi image Pigtail Polly which you can purchase here, and coloured her in using Promarkers. For the rest of the materials I have used Creata mirror/backing card and lace ribbon for the borders,  I have used Joy Craft flower and Spellbinders blossom dies to create the flower toppers and tag from the same Creata mirror/backing and silky card with a brad to finish. The leaves I had in my stash and stenciled onto Creata mirror card and cut out. Finishing off with some more lace ribbon, bakers twine and peel offs..

Welcome to my first DT post for 'My Besties UK'

Morning all, still can't believe it, but welcome to my first Design Team post for My Besties UK, a new challenge has started and the theme is 'Circles', please pop over and join in the fun, there are fab prizes up for grabs for the Winners.

So here goes.....for my first project I have used the Sherri Baldy digi Image no.857 which you can purchase here and coloured in using Promarkers. For my card background, after I cut it in the shape of a circle, I coloured it using a mixture of Ranger distress inks peeled paint and bundled sage, I used Creata backing card for the scalloped edged topper and for the tree. All around I layered up leaves cut out from Creata mirror card using Joy Craft dies in keeping with the earthy tones. For the flowers I used glittered card from my stash cut out using Joy Craft dies and Papermania brads for the centre, I also used Anita's paper roses. To finish off I used shimmer dots to create the rain effect and jewel for the little girl's bow also from my stash and for the sentiment, I made this up on my pc, printed on white card and backed with Creata mirror card cut out using Spellbinder scalloped circle dies. For all Creata and Joy Craft products, you can purchase them here.
