With Love

Hello!  I'm back again, stepping outside the comfort zone with my dies from Cheery Lynn Designs…You know how I adore my dies and how inspired I am to see what else I can create!
The bottom layer is created with the largest of the Mini Pearl Rectangle Mega Doily Reflections Die set. I just love how versatile the Reflections dies are! Next is the dainty Queen Anne’s Lace border atop the beautiful Border Carnivale. I hand stitched the heart, and then added the Dainty Dutch Deco Frame to back the photo. Under the photo is a strip outlined by the stunning Lace Light Deco Border. Tucked in on the right is the Mega Tea Party Doily.
I created my flower by cutting one layer of Flower Stacker #5 from cardboard, then dry brushed the edges with Distress Paint. I added the little lace doily from the center of the Dainty Dutch Deco Frame underneath the flower along with some pieces of the Fanciful Flourish and foliage from Olive Branches, Stacker Flower #1 leaf, and Large Leaves #2.
  Using the mini Exotic Butterfly set, I cut three layers of butterfly from velum. (thanks to my good friend Rhonda for the fun tip!) She rests atop a swirl from the Fanciful Flourish, and a piece of Olive Branches
Banners have been such a fun trend. The Pennant Die is the perfect size for both layouts and cards! Notice the detail on the Pennant?! So Cute!!  I fussy cut the glitter and birds from pattern paper to adorn the top, and added a Miniature Rose to finish it off!
