Crafty Purple Frog DT Card.................Summer

Good morning all my lovely friends how are you all this morning?
Its time for my Crafty Purple Frog Challenge card & this week we have a lovely theme.....we are hoping it will blow this rain away & bring back Mr Sunshine......hap...hap...happy sunshine....
The theme is SUMMER.
So bring those summery creations along & come & join in the fun.
This week as well as the usual prizes from Crafty Purple Frog we have the fabulous sponsor of
Delicous Doodles....Teri does such beautiful artwork....a very talented woman!!!

Here is my summery creation..............

This is 'Carnation Fairy' decoupage & I thought she was perfect for this theme....I love carnations.

This pic is to show you the decoupage layers.

This beautiful fabric flower in the centre is from Crafts & Me & I will be soooo getting more of this. Its a flower ribbon but I just cut 1 off & it matches my pink seam binding underneath really may just be able to see it lol. I also added white tulle underneath the seam binding.

Added some glitter to her wings, hard to photo lol. I also placed her on a Lacey Oval Nestie once I decoupaged her up. Isnt she so pretty. Paper is Prima 'Sparkling Spring'. All card is A4 card from my stash.

I felt like there was something missing when I was taking the photo's so when I was finished I added 3 pink pearl gems along the top & took 1 more piccy to show you lol.

Do pop along to see my fabby teamies creations, they always make such stunners. We hope you can join along this fortnight we look forward to seeing your summery creations.

Thank you so much for stopping by it really means a lot.
Huge squishy hugs to all mmwah

Lovely, pink and girly hun! Yes, I think it needed those pearls, or a huge bow. . . That flower looks yummy, might have to investigate those, if I ever get some time back!!
Hope you get those bricks finished soon!!
