I have had this image for a while and totally forgot about it - wonder how many of us do that :) :) Anyway, I spent a weekend colouring up several images for upcoming creations and this one one of them, isn't it just so precious. The image was coloured with Promarkers and the sun/moon was edged with a silver pen which I smudged around to try and create some flare.
I ended up going for a twisted easel card with a very lacy look just using dies. I just adore the Tattered Lace die I got on a magazine a year or so ago and for this creation I cut it three times. Two of the cuts were left whole and the third I cut into a couple of sections and attached them to the whole die on the front. The image was cut with a Spellbinder Oval and mounted on the Tattered Lace Antique Oval die. To finish off the die cutting I then added a tiny butterfly to link in with the image using Cherry Lyn Designs Mimi Butterflies and used mauve card for the underside of the wings. The sentiment was a simple silver congratulations which I had to cut down to Congrats to fit into the area created by the inner cut of the Tattered Lace Antique Oval die which is a buckle to which I threaded wide organza ribbon through. Finishing off I added a large white double organza bow with a safety pin charm and a blue button and then a spray of pearls.
