Birthday box

Good day everyone.
I was asked to make a birthday box for a friend. I used Kanban Vintage paper and cut squares to layer around the inside. I die cut some butterflies and added a floral display to the centre. I added some bronze leaves to the floral arrangement. I die cut a sentiment tag "happy birthday" so that it could be added inside/outside or to a gift.The lid was decorated with crochet lace to the rim, a large bronze flower to which I attached a pearl flower centre.A small rose set it off nicely.

altered teacup

 Hello everyone. A friend asked me to alter a teacup and saucer from her late mothers tea set. This was to be a gift for her sister. I used artificial flowers of various colour and sizes. The small ones I added pearls to the centres. I added broken glass and Glamour dust to some of the larger flowers. Some pink berries were used along with glass pebbles/pearls/deep pink faceted beads. To complete I added small pearl strand around the teacup base and silver butterfly and bird set it off rather nicely.
ps I apologise for the lack of pristine photos but I was pushed for time and had to wrap it for delivering.

Thanks for stopping by.

sweet card

A sweet Chritsmas card using Lemon Craft Hand painted papers and The Peony Papers. I die cut some twig/leaves and a border for the bottom (spellbinders). I die cut a poinsettia from white Foamiran (Marianne designs die) and added some sparkly ball stamens. I used Glossy accents to "raise" some of the flowers on the paper. I left it uncrowded as the paper is so beautiful. I think the Foamiran flower makes it stand out.

I die cut some circles in spotted paper to add layers. I die cut some small trees and a cardboard heart . The trees were inked with TH ink then decorated with beads. I added a sentiment stamped with Memento cocoa ink. A small winter white rose was added with a sparkle ball. Tilda was coloured with Derwent pencils and spectrum noir. Some Wink of Stella was used to add sparkle here and there.
