Summer Bouquet


Hi and Good Morning everyone, today over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog I am sharing more inspiration using some of the gorgeous new release Cheery Lynn Designs dies, as well as some of my favourite classic dies too! :)
 
I used a 6 x 6 blank card base, and layered K&Co papers onto white bazzill card.  I placed the gorgeous Dainty Dutch Deco Doily, on top of the base layer of paper and added die cut square and scalloped square mats. 
 
I made the border using the brilliant Alisons's Ribbons (these are so versatile!) and layered the Sophias Heart Border on top.  I coloured my image in PM's and matted it onto the oval scalloped and oval silver stackers, and the stunning new Horizon Oval Boutique Frames. 
 
The heart embellishment was created using 2 layers of the different sized Two of Hearts, and I cut a contrasting piece of paper for the centre heart too.  I added a super-cute bumble bee and also my signature butterfly (Oh.. I use this butterfly on everything!).
 
The pretty flowers were made from the quick and easy Sweet Williams Strip secured with a pearl brad, and I added some leaves, pearls and a pin for a finishing touch.

All dies used on this card are:

DL141 - Dainty Dutch Deco Doily
XL-2 - Scalloped Square Stackers
L-1 - Classic Square Silver Stackers
B335 - Alisons Ribbons
B333 - Sophias Heart Border
DL252 - Horizon Oval Boutique Stackers
L-7 - Oval Classic Stackers
XL-8 - Oval Scalloped Stackers
B241 - Rose Leaf Strip
B178 - Flourish Leaf Strip
B307 - Sweet Williams Strip
DL128 - Two of Hearts
B266 - Tiny Things with Wings
DL112 - Small Exotic Butterflies

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, and I hope you find time to join in our challenge this week where our theme is 'Doilies'. 

Have a smashing week!
