So Many Presents

Hello. blogger friends.
I hope you are well?
I'm here to share a card I made a few weeks ago using some of the gorgeous products available at The Ribbon Girl online store.

I used  So Many Presents available from Lili Of The Valley
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock and cut out using a CartUs circle die.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils and matted the image onto a Spellbinders stately circle.

For my shaped card I used XXL frilly frame #5 and Maja Design Vintage Spring basics papers from Live & Love Crafts
Other dies used are Cheery Lynn French pastry doily, La La Land hot air balloon, Sizzix on the edge butterflight, Joy Crafts banner and Billes flourishes.
The sentiment is Joy Crafts English banner text.
I have inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink.
Here is a list of all the gorgeous embellishments I used on my card from The Ribbon Girl
45mm Jessica Guipure Lace, 32mm Clementine Ivory Embroidered Tulle Lace, 25mm Heliotrope No 7 Berisford Satin Ribbon, 10mm Double Row Ivory Pearl Trim, Pearl And Rhinestone Butterflies, Lilac 30mm Wild Roses, Lilac 20mm Open Rose WOC, Beaded Stamen White/White, Princess Pin Lilac, Oval Lilac Diamante Embellishment and 3mm Self Adhesive Liking Lilac Pearls.

A close look at the flower arrangement.

The bow with the gorgeous lilac diamante embellishment.

A close look at the sweet image and those very pretty rhinestone butterflies.

Inside the card is decorated with design paper and a Spellbinders stately circle.

I hope you like my card?
