Butterfly Birthday card ....

For this butterfly birthday card for my niece, I used paper from the Lemoncraft 'Gossamer Blue' 6x6 paper pad and embellished with hand made flowers using a Heartfelt Creations stamp and die and paper from the same pad, embossed with silver glitter and clear 14mm and 8mm flatback gems in the centre of each and 3 miniature white blossoms.  The butterflies are diecut and again, 8mm gems added.  

I added pale aqua satin ribbon and a sky blue 20mm paper rose

Mouse shaker card ...

This is my first attempt at a shaker card - I used paper from Galeria ' As if in a Dream Retro' 12x12 pad and a LOTV simply print image  (each time I look I feel he is saying ' if I give you these flowers, will you let me out of this bubble?) 

My flowers include miniature blossoms, cherry blossoms, 20mm paper roses and hip rosebuds.  I've added some pale green leaves and twisted the flower stalks around a fine paintbrush to make twirls.

The lace is white 38mm 'Charlotte' vintage style and 15mm pale lime satin ribbon.

Three little maids .. and a tiny teddy

 I love this gorgeous brand new 'Simply Print' image from LOTV, three little bridesmaids and the smallest has just dropped her teddy - it's just adorable!  The background paper is from the  Maja Design 6x6 'Enjoying Outdoors' paper pad trimmed with 55mm Emma ivory guipure lace, 15mm bridal white satin ribbon, a 20mm pearl and diamante flower shaped embellishment.

The flower arrangements include ivory 30mm wild rose, 20mm open rose, ivory rolled roses, tiny pearl clusters on silver stems and there are three miniature white blossoms in the top corner
