You are Special


Hmmm, I didnt mean this to be quite so girly, but it just kind of ended up that way!... lol. 

I spent so long today looking for small nesties, that I ended up with very little time to make this.  Remember how I had lost my smallest scalloped circular nestie?  Well, not to be outdone again, I decided to put all my very small nesties and dies (leaves, hearts, stars etc) in one bag so as not to lose them.  I then went and lost the entire bag!.... RARRRRGH!! 

My husband heard me moaning and talking to myself, and the dogs stayed clear away, as shelves were emptied and curses were thrown across the room! :D

.............and I just wanted to find the little heart that you see on the card to make my own buttons with to fit in with the Just Magnolia  Challenge - Anything Goes with Buttons :) 

Its great now that we can use H'anglar images as well as Magnolias on this challenge, as I have never felt I have given them enough use.  I used some very old glitter card (at least 4 years old I reckon), HOTP papers, leaves, tags and a heart charm dangle.  I ripped the vellum and also ripped the top left corner of my paper, securing it back with eyelets and sparkly ribbon.  I also inked the edges of the papers, my image and the doily lace punch.  I think the flash on my camera has made it a lot more pink and bright than it is.

Anyway, I will be entering this card in the below competitions:

Just Magnolia - Anything Goes with Buttons
Wild Orchid Challenge - Great Sketch by Bev
Do You Stack Up - I have ripped the Vellum panel, and also tore the top left corner of the DP
I Love ProMarkers - Punches

Crafts and Me - Tearing paper
Lets Ink It Up - Anything goes - No digis
Top Tip Tuesday - Anything Goes
Crazy 4 Challenges - Photo inspiration

That bundle of embellishment in the rop left corner is a lovely concoction & I'm loving your use of torn vellum. Those buttons are super & work so well echoing the "ornament" held by the image. The fur trim & sparkly wings are very effective indeed & I love that highlighting on her feet - really brilliant dimension. The colours are so good together - you need your girlieness with all those men about! Love those card candy (?) things & the whole effect is quite stunning. Glad you found your Nesties & hope the dogs returned to your vicinity when all was calm again.

Lovely card again Alison! I've become a follower, thanks for your comment on my blog. I don't think there is a follower button on wordpress, but you can subscribe and it will let you know when I update. Will be keeping an eye out for RA, hoping he comes across the pond, though Perth is on the wrong side of the country - doh! Though our east coast is flooded at the moment, so he can come visit our beaches :)
Cheers
