You are a peach ..........



I made this card for the challenge over at Lils Little Fairies ' peaches and cream' - I used a LOTV diecut of this cute little girl with her pet sitting next to a pot of flowers.  I cut it down a little to fit inside this pretty heart edged nestie.  I decided to make a step card and used Pion papers on a dark peach card background.  All edges were inked with a new white dabber from Tim Holtz - if only I had realised that the top was not screwed on securely, it wouldn't have dripped down my hand, my cardigan, the table, the floor, Andreas hands ........ oh dear  -  thank goodness for paper hankies!! and I'll not forget to check next time I use it.

I added Peach seam binding and cream 18mm zig zag lace plus a pretty blossom flower.  The main card was finished with three stick on pearls from stash.


The sentiment from Papertrey Ink was stamped in cocoa brown ink and the inside of the card was decorated to compliment the front.   The ready printed die cuts are a real boon when you need a card in a particular colour  (especially as  I had already decided on this particular Pion paper - I just matched up the colours with the printed image - simples!
