Midsummer's Night And An Inspirational Card For The Ribbon Girl

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.
I hope you are well.
I am here to share a Birthday card that I have made for my Mum who is celebrating her Birthday at the end of May using lots of stunning embellishments from The Ribbon Girl online store.

I used Midsummer's Night from Lili Of The Valley
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Bristol board extra smooth cardstock and cut around the image.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor & Polychromos pencils and mounted the finished image onto a Spellbinders floral oval.

For the shape of my card I used GoKreate large frame frilly # 2 and Maja Design Vintage Autumn Basics papers.
Other dies used are; Cheery Lynn English tea party doily, Marianne Design clock and Ivy circle. Magnolia Doohickey bloomy tag and jungle leaves.
I have inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz Vintage photo distress ink.

Here is a list of the stunning embellishments that I have used on my card from

Here are a couple of close up's of the flowers, Vintage pins, dragonfly charm, mushroom charm and resin cameo frame.
I have painted the frame with white Gesso and rubbed over it with Tim Holtz aged mahogany distress ink. Around the inside of the frame I adhered a length of 3mm x 5mm oval white pearl string and using 2mm 3D sticky pads adhered the mushroom charm inside the oval.

A close look at this adorable fairy.
I loved colouring her!
I surrounded the image with Shabby white embossing enamel and 3mm sugar & Spice s/a pearls.
Around the outside of the image I adhered a length of 4mm Ivory pearl string.
I used glamour dust on the stars and added white liquid pearls to the toadstools.
I used glossy accents on the moon.

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

I hope that I have inspired you with my card?
