Hello, lovely blogger friend's.
I hope you are well.
Today see's a new challenge over on The Ribbon Girl blog and the challenge theme is.................
There are 3 wonderful prizes up for grabs. You can find out more at the end of this post. Believe me you wont be disappointed!

I have made a Birthday card from my Mother to my gorgeous niece.

I used Santoro Gorjuss Ladybird (mini stamp)
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Bristol Board Extra Smooth cardstock and cut out using a Joy Crafts Noor! oval.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.

For my shaped card I used GoKreate large frame frilly #10 and Maja Design Coffee In The Arbour papers.
Other dies used are; Cheery Lynn English tea party doily and French pastry doily. Magnolia Doohickey bloomy tags, Marianne Design stitched circle and Spellbinders Fall foliage.
Here is a list of all the gorgeous Ribbon Girl embellishments that I used on my card.Just click on the links below to take you directly to the products

Here is a couple of close up's of the flowers, Butterfly charm and bronze Vintage oval frame.
I have painted the butterfly charm with white Gesso and rubbed over it with lemon ink. I then adhered 3mm white s/a pearl flatbacks into the recesses on the wings and adhered a 5mm blue s/a pearl to the centre. The Vintage frame has been painted with white Gesso and rubbed over with Audrey blue ink.
I cut an oval with the design paper and adhered it to the centre of the frame.
The number 12 is cut out using Memory Box classic numbers and adhered onto the oval using 2mm sticky pads.

A close look at this adorable little lady.
I surrounded the image with shabby white embossing enamel and 3mm white s/a pearl flatbacks.
Around the outside of the image I have adhered a length of 4mm white pearl bead string.

Inside the card is decorated with design paper and a Joy Crafts Noor! oval.
