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
