Sweet Six

Welcome, and thanks for visiting. 
I have been card making, but not blogging much.  
I also went shopping last week and had fun playing with some new supplies.


I started with the fun dp that I bought last week, and matched it with the pearlised paper, which I embossed with the Bird Call folder.
The dp has a shiny finish to it, and the coloured lines are slightly raised.


The circular motif was a digi freebie by Cindy Close I copied ages ago.  It was printed on a linen textured card and sprayed with silver shimmer mist, then mounted over the silver plant wrap I used on a card before Christmas.  I added the pearls and mounted all this with foam dots to give some dimension.


The balance of the join between the papers was covered with a scrap of lace - the last of a piece I received in a RAK from Melisa of Paperlicious Designs - and a wee piece of ribbon.


The card still looked rather 'grown up' for a six year old, so after rabbiting through my stash I found these gorgeous puffy heart stickers I had been given some time ago. Once I had added them I was more than happy with the result.

I am linking this to:
