A Finnish Star with Fairies and Flowers ......

For many months I have kept a link to Debbi's blog where she showed her readers how to make this Finnish star - well, inspired by this weeks LOTV challenge (pink, white and silver - my favourites!) I set to and created this 3-dimensional beauty! Bad light prevented perfect photos, but not bad considering we've had the lights on all morning it's so gloomy.

I used double sided pink patterned paper 'Rose Coloured Glasses' and added a LOTV diecut with 2 little fairies (I thought it was rather apt as the current LOTV challenge blog will close and a new LOTV challenge blog begins in the new year and will be called Lili's Little Fairies  (and can I just take this opportunity of wishing Jacqui and Bev the very best of luck with the new challenge).

Once I had made the star itself (the instructions were spot on Debbi, thank you) I added the LOTV image on a scalloped mat of pink card, then embellished with pink and white roses, pretty blossoms and leaves, cut white leaves with my Martha Stewart punch then added a ribbon bow made with our new striped organza white and silver ribbon.  I used stardust stickles on the white leaves and the fairies, then added some raindrop shaped sparkly gems on the points of the star.  I will be making more of these, they are so pretty.
Flowers, roses, rose-leaves and ribbon are all from here. Gems and stickles from stash.
(Please don't forget the Ribbon Girl Blog is having a sumptuous red ribbon giveaway on Sunday!)
see you soon, Mary G x

Hi Mary,
wow, what a beauty - it looks so pretty in pink, a stunning version. And so glad you liked the tut, it's always great to see how other people can use the same instructions to make something look so different
