What A Lovely Day

Hello everyone how are you all? I meant to post this card earlier but the weather has been so glorious & hot so havn't been at my laptop.
I have a card that I made for 3 challenges, yeah 3 challenges can you believe it lol.
Live & Love Crafts Challenge is an inspiration pic below, so pretty!!
LOTV monthly challenge wants to see 'Fairies' & The Ribbon Girl challenge which is also LOTV this week wants to see 'Pearls'..............so here it is to fit all 3 ;0)
Now as LOTV want to see 'Fairies' I have of course used one of their uber gorgeous new Fairy stamps
I also made this card for a special young lady, yes my daughter Natalie is 22 next month 6th June & this is the card off her younger brother...... So it had to be soft, pink & oh yes pretty like my daughter '0)

I will list all the items used at the bottom. The papers have all been distressed, inked & machine sewn.

The leaves are Magnolia 'Sprawling Ferns' die & the rolled roses are a Marianne die with pink card from my stash & I added White Paint.

The stamp is called 'Hugs' which I thought was perfect for Natalie off her brother. I lurve all of these new fairies & I dont think I can pick a fave so went by what they were called to pick one for Natty's card.
I have coloured with Distress markers & added glitter to her wings & flowers.

The resin oval is MF 'Provincial Frame' which has also been coated in Shabby Pink Fran-Tage. The letters spelling out 'SIS' are from Pion 'Red Clover' from the Grandma's School Book 6x6 collection. The die the image sits on & the butterfly edge are both from Joy Crafts. Pink seam binding is from my stash & the pearl centre is Maya Road, Sandy has different ones now which are just as gorgeous, here is the link.


Ingredients I have used..........
Lace 'Estee' 40mm (1 of my faves)
All of these items, except the stamp are from Live & Love Crafts.

Well thats it from me hope you like my daughter's card & I certainly hope Natalie does, although she the last cards had LOTV images & her smile was........well it was mahoosive ;0) As you know a smile is worth a thousand words & although Natalie cannot talk her smiles speak VOLUMES.......lol.

Well enjoy your weekend lovelies, long live this gorgeous weather lol. Take care & thank you so much for stopping by mmwah.
Great big squishy hugs to all
