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.

Joan's Garden Challenge

Well it's been so long since I've made anything and posted here on my blog I thought today would be a good day to start after visiting Joan's Garden blog and seeing all the beautiful cards . She has a special guest this week and the challenge is to follow the techniques she used on her card . So here's what I came up with using the tech. of stamping on pattern paper adding some glitter and distress inks as well as making a flower .I used the 6x6 pad of Prima Fairy Flora to stamp my image on and added the glitter to the flowers with a 2way glue pen.The pearls are made with the viva decor pen. Also entering this card in a challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge--Ribbon or Lace and Cropstop Challenge #34 Anything Goes.
