Dainty Cake

Hello, lovely blogger friends.
I hope you are well.
I have a commissioned card to share made using lots of yummy products from

I used Dainty Cake available from Lili Of The Valley
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock and cut out using a CartUs oval die.
I have coloured the image wuth Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils and matted the image onto a Joy Crafts Noor! Design oval.

For my shaped card I used GoKreate large frame frilly #2 and Graphic 45 Secret Garden papers.
Other dies used are Marianne Design Anja's decoration, La La Land hot air balloon, cherry blossom branches and heart doily border. Cherry Lynn French pastry doily.
I have inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink.
Here is a list of all the yummy products I have used on my card available from 
45mm Eleanor white embroidered tukke lace, aqua daisy lacey edge ribbon, 10mm double row Ivory pearl trim, resin cameo roses flatback frame, Ivory resin dove, 3mm white s/a pearl flatbacks, sea charm s/a pearl flatbacks, chrysanth white Kort & Godt, blooms tiny Vintage aqua, princess pin aqua, oval clear diamante embellishment, pearl and rhinestone butterflies and 3mm x 5mm oval white pearl string.

Some close ups of the embellishments.
I hand tied the bow and adhered the clear diamante oval to the centre.
I have painted the resin roses cameo frame with white Gesso and rubbed it over with SSS Audrey blue premium dye ink pad.
I have die cut the 40 using Memory Box classic numbers.
The gorgeous enchanted butterfly is from Live & Love Crafts I have also painted it with white Gesso, rubbed it with Audrey blue ink. and then I embellished it with pearls.

A close look at the flower arrangement.
The 30mm light Ivory roses and white beaded stamens are from WOC.
The rest of the flowers and princess pin are from The Ribbon Girl as listed above.

A close look at this elegant image.
I sprinkled Frantage shabby white embossing enamel around the image and added a few white liquid pearls here and there.
You can also see the gorgeous pearl and rhinestone butterflies which I really love to embellish my cards with these days.
I have adhered a 3mm sea charm s/a pearl to the bow in this sweet lady's hair and dotted her cheeks with a white Gelly roll pen.

Inside the card is decorated with Graphic 45 paper and a Spellbinders floral oval.

I hope you like what you see!?!?
