Sentimental Sundays: Easter or Spring

21032012951

Hi everyone! I hope you all are in great health. Today I bring to you a brand new challenge over at Sentimental Sundays and this week the challenge theme is Spring or Easter. I chose Spring and used Meljen’s beautiful digi called Victorian Birdcage. Meljen’s Design is our sponsor this week.

My inspiration from Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger and sketch over at Card Patterns:

Simple Elegance[1]         sketch158[1]

It was VERY windy when I took these pictures, the card kept tipping over, you can see the very weird angle above!

21032012953 All flowers and leaves are cut using Silhouette SD and coloured with distress inks. The beautiful tiny gems (glitter gems) and gold glitter balls are from Pie Lane. The birdie is coloured with Classic Faber Castell colour pencils.

21032012952 The frame is Silhouette cut, the flower stamp and sentiment used here is by Hero Arts. The background paper is a digi-freebie photo frame.

21032012946There are many tiny details in this card, it took me quite a long time to put this together. Even though my printer is very low on ink, the paper looks fine and goes with the shabby/vintage feel of the card.

Please visit the Sentimental Sundays blog to check out what the rest of the team has churned up!

See you soon!

Challenges: Tuesday Trigger, Card Patterns, Crafty Ann’s, Prairie Fairy, Our Craft Lounge, Raise the bar, Create me pink, PCJ, Papercraft Star,

You always make these cards that make me sigh with happy and say to myself "How is something this gorgeous even possible!?" Seriously how on earth! I love love love every detail. I can only imagine how long it took you. The way the pink flower image is echoed by your stunning 3D blooms (HOW on earth did you make those!?) The glittered cage, the pop of blue in the background the little gold beaded effect, the vines!! Those teeny gems... Sorry for the rant but this is seriously another of your masterpieces worthy of endless raving. Thanks for making the world a more beautiful place with your talent! ox
