Guest Designer Card - Birthstones

Good morning everyone how are you all? Now this is a scheduled post, so I'm hoping we are having a lovely sunny saturday.........mmmm wonder if we are????

Anyway the lovely Sandy from the UBER lovely vintage craft shop that we all know & lurve 
Live & Love Crafts asked if I would Guest Design for her.....well of course the answer was a big FAT YESSSSSSSSSSS.........
The challenge this month is sooooooooo easy, the theme is.........
BIRTHSTONES
...............see easy right!! It was easy for me anyway because on the 6th June is my daughters birthday, she will be 21.........omg I cant believe it. Anyway the birthstone for June is 'Pearl' & this card is for Natalie off her younger brother Jake.
I have made her a shaped card with a -Go-Kreate die & a Sweet Pea image ;0)
 I also added a 4.5" Round Doily.

I've Frantaged a Metal Corner, a Dragonfly Charm'Fresh Foliage' die-cut. They were frantaged with Stampendous 'Shabby Blue'............you sooooo gotta love this stuff ;0)

Flowers are a mixture from WOC & my stash.

The Sweet Pea image is a digi by Ching Chou Kuik & is called 'Misty Allure' & she is of course coloured with Copics.
Colours used are..................
E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20
C9, C7, C5, C3, C1, C00
BG09, BG05, BG01, BG00


The gorgeous papers are Maja Design '1st April''2nd April' from the Vintage Spring Basics Collection. I distressed them with my tooly thing & inked them with Walnut DI.
I made a double bow with 'Shabby Seam Binding' & attached a Maya Road 'Pearl Centre' to the centre of it. 
The sentiment is Whimsy's 'Vintage Birthday tabs' & I cut it out using the die. I also attached a
mini 'Bark Heart' to the side of it. I stamped out a Whimsy 'Seed Packet' onto kraft card & distressed it.

Well thats it from me, I would like to thank Sandy sooooooo much for having me as Guest Designer, truly honoured sweetie mmwah. Do pop over here to look at her fabulous DT ladies creations.
I will hopefully be back tomorrow with my MCH DT card.

Will catch up with you all soon. Thank you soooooooooooo much for all your lovely coments you are totally rock!!!!!!!!

Lotsa squishy hugs & funky love Vicky xxxxxxxxxxx
