Butterfly Kisses - 7 dots

Every once in a while you find a paper that absolutely captivates you.
I used this Nature Walk paper from 7 dots to do some samples for display in one of my local shops. But as we do, I had multiples of my favourite sheets and wanted to make myself a set. While this is similar to the original, the beauty of redoing something is that you can redesign each time.
I found this time around, that the chipboard piece from Dusty Attic -  Corner Flourish #4, gives it a new look and a great body for the butterfly - This is my new take!! K x

'Love' with Rose Quartz

'LOVE' Card - Rose Quartz Collection - Megs Garden

Megs Garden has bought us all a beautiful new range named the Rose Quartz Collection. You can check it out over at A beautiful range of pinks and such a variety of images to allow for a varied range of projects. Here is my first project in the range using the card maker pack and all of the coordinating lace and flowers you can purchase at Megs Garden. K

I have first selected a number of images and background papers, a paper rose and the fabric flowers.

 I have coloured the thin crochet braid with Victorian Velvet distress ink to coordinate.

 Layer the background print onto a white distressed mat, then onto a pink card base.
Add the layers of lace and pearl, overlapping as you go.

 Layer the images, tucking and using 3d foam to give a nice variation.
 Ink the tips of the white paper rose. Add the flower cluster, 'LOVE' word and phrase to finish.

I have used the Rose Quartz paper craft pack, Antique Cream Lace, Antique Pink Lace, Carabella Rose, French white open rose, Organza Lace Flowers, Pearl trim.

For more inspiration, please pop on over to the Megs Garden Blog and Facebook pages.
Thankyou so much for looking. Happy Creating!! K x
