Celebrate you

Hi everyone! I'm here today with a card using those gorgeous Quixotic Paperies goodies!  I went for a vintage shabby chic look, but it looks too clean and neat!!  What do you think...




This gal is so elegant, don't you think?  She is Susana Loves Stamps - Classic Eyes or you can buy her in the Eyes of Dreams set of 4 stamps with a bonus stamp.  I used Viva Decor Pearl Pen and the Viva Decor Glitter Liner to highlight her headdress.  I used those gorgeous elegant papers from the My Minds Eye Miss Caroline Fiddlesticks pad and the sentiment is from the Paper Makeup Little Moments Mini set.  Lastly, I finished it off with embellishing with beads for the flower centres and a rich touch of Prima lace.

And do you like the layout?  I used my March-April sketch - if you want a chance to win a £15 voucher to the store, see all the deets here!



That's it from me - have a lovely weekend everybody!
