Fantastic news

Fantastic news......


I just became a member of the Design Team for Crafters Companion


I'm so excited and frighten. I've never been on a Design Team before, haven't got a clue what I'm doing, but the other members are amazing and have made me feel so welcome. I've seen some of their work and it is out of this world. I hope I don't let them down.
Thank you to all of you who have left me messages and comments on my facebook page, You are all fabulous and it means so much to me.

Ok on with todays post. I made this card for my friends mum birthday. She likes flowers and pink, so this is what I made.

The card is 8in x 8in from Craftwork cards. I covered the front and inside with 8 in card stock from Kanban. I had some stripes of pattern card left over so I layer them up and added Lilac raffia to them

 
The button wreath is made using The plastic ring that you have left from your double sided tape. I covered it in Pink ribbon and added the buttons with glue. The tag is a chip board one from Craftwork cards. I covered in paper and used distress ink to make it lilac, The stamp is from Kanban, I used Tim Holtz distress pens to colour it very softly. I added some ribbon from Fantastic Ribbon Company. Behind the tag I added a white feather, you can just see the edges.
 

 
The roses I made from A collection from Kanban, I added some glitter and dotty ribbon to them. The peel off boarder is from Pinflair. They are fabulous to use.

 
I added a dollie that I inked up, I didn't want it white as it stood out to much. The candi is from Craftwork Cards and they have the most amazing collection in so many colours

 
This one is a rose candi and I love them
 
 
I made the label with a chipboard from Craftwork cards, I added paper and distress it, added Ribbon and wrote her name using Martha Stewerd Glitter pens

 
I hope you like my card, It took me all day, Ok most of the day, I did pop on to facebook a couple of times lol.
 
Thank you for popping over, Please feel free to leave a comment as I love to read them.
 
Thank you
 
Love Lise xxxx
