A little birdhouse...

Hi there, Emma here!

I couldn't resist using this cute little image from the Daisy Doodles store called 'Birdhouse', My papers are a mix from an older cd rom from Create and craft called 'Triple Treasures' (I just love the little birds and the ladybugs!!!) and the gorgeous gingham papers were free from Bev's blog!! (Thankyou Bev!!) I have distressed and glittered all edges and I used the sewing machine to stitch around the papers,...

...I have coloured my image 'Birdhouse' with Promarkers and chalks...

...My gorgeous lace and flowers are from Wild Orchid and they have all been glittered...

...The sentiment is part of the 'Birdhouse' set and I have used a couple of punched butterflies with some extra glitter and gems!!

  10. Wow Sis, it's so amazing to see how you and Mam have used the same image yet you have both created two completely different cards, both totally stunning. I love your pastel colours and how you've printed the sentiment onto the blue gingham, that's clever!
    Your flowers are beautiful, I especially love the large deep lilac one. I love all the glitter and you lace and ribbon is very pretty too.
    I do love the little pearls you both always scatter so generously over your cards, they're such a fab touch.
    Another amazing card Sis. Love ya xxx
