Design a life you love



Just wanted to share a canvas I did for my sister's Birthday recently . I used the Kaisercraft DP from the After Five Collection. Love these papers so I stocked up on them from FargoCat Shops. The flower was made from brown paper bag and misted with my own recipe of Glimmer mist (bronze perfect pearls,vintage photo DI reinker and water).I used one of the Cheery Lynn doily dies for the doily.
TH's dies for the bird cage and flourish as well as the flower. Lace ,buttons,pearls,and metal embellies were all from my stash.

Entering this is a couple of challenges
