There are 3 wonderful prizes up for grabs where you can find out more at the end of this post.
Believe me you most definitely will not be disappointed!

I have made another Birthday card.

I used Silvia Zet 'Loli & Shellie'
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Bristol board extra smooth cardstock and cut out using a CartUs oval.
I have coloured the image's with Prismacolor & Polychromos pencils and matted the finished image of Loli onto a Joy Crafts Noor! oval.

For the shape of my card I used GoKreate large frame frilly #2 and Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics papers.
Other dies used are; Cheery Lynn English tea party doily and French pastry doily. Marianne Design clock and leaves from Creatables English roses. Spellbinders lattice hearts, Joy Crafts sentiments banner and Magnolia Doohickey bloomy tag.
I have inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz Vintage photo distress ink.
Here is a list of the beautiful embellishments from The Ribbon Girl that I have used on my card.

Here a couple of close ups of my flower arrangements, bloomy tags tied with mauve mist seam binding, resin dove and bee charm.
I have painted the resin dove with white Gesso and crinkled the seam binding using water and scrunched it until dry.

Here is a close look at adorable Loli with Shellie the snail.
I have adhered the oval pearl string around the outside of the image and surrounded the image with 3mm liking lilac pearls.
The tiny butterflies are punched out using a Woodware punch.
I stamped Shellie separately with Memento rich cocoa ink and coloured her with Polychromos pencils.
The frame is from The Works. I painted it with white Gesso and adhered 3mm liking lilac pearls onto the frame.
I used glossy accents on the shell to give a shiny look.

Inside the card is decorated with design paper and a GoKreate large frame frilly #2 die cut.
