A girlie card for my blog

Hi guys, my lat two posts have been for my hubby and there is only so much you can do for a mans card right? so I'm putting this on for a feminine feel lol,
This was a commissioned card  I made a few weeks ago but thought I'd blog it now, I have used an 8 x 8" card because I wanted to fit all the elements in,
The gorgeous papers are by Maja again, this time the 12 x 12 so i could get the size I needed, I used the same technique on the papers as my GDT card for Bunny Zoe's  I showed you a few posts back, I love the clock peeking out of the top corner, so love this clock paper by maja design, have I said that before???? lol
the pearl heart on top of the scrunched paper is by  Marianne Design and is from Bunny Zoe's,
The image is by Lily of the Valley and is coloured with my copics then I have used distress inks on the outer edges to give a softer look, a hint of  frantage in shabby white adds a little detail,
On the edge of the paper I added some lace again for interest and texture then made lots of paper roses using some of the papers and added a pearl in the centre and an odd dutch doobadoo paper art leaf or two, these I coloured with Distress ink, the flourish is a  large die by Cheery Lynn,
The butterfly is made using delight clay from Crafts and Me and a Martha Stewart butterfly mould,
I have added yet more detail with a crafters workshop Gothic Romance stencil and some home made 3D paste, another of the flourish dies, plus a smaller one too, yet more flowers, butterflies and a clock, so love these, 
A hint of cheese cloth finishes off the card, 
Took me ages making those flowers he he,
well hope this is feminine after my men cards lol
Lotv stamp - Mr and Mrs
Flower die - La La Land crafts
LOTV - Sentiment
Delight Clay - crafts and me
Cheese cloth/ lace/ pearls - stash

Hope they liked it,

the papers are from the My Minds Eye Heirloom pad from Nikki at Bunny Zoe's, love these papers,
The sprawling ferns dies are also from Bunny Zoe's too,
I layered him onto a scalloped circle die then a fab die by Noor, these look fab when embossed as the detail really shows,
the Happy Birthday sentiment dies are by Cheery Lynn, love these too,
I added a Bloomy tag die by Magnolia for a little added detail on the right with a charm I had in my stash,

I got her from the lovely Nikki at Bunny Zoe's and she's so fab to colour which I have done with my copics for a change, are you like that? I go with what mood I'm in for the medium I use lol,
the frame is made up of some corrugated card then i added some of the kaiser craft lace round it too,
the striped paper is by Magnolia and has some gorgeous birds on it so I cut them off  to use for another time,
The sentiment is computer written and i cut it out with a Doo Hickey tag die, the charm and twine is from stash, 
Too finish off the card I added a border using another Magnolia Doo Hickey die and a Love sentiment using a Kaiser craft text stamp,  the paper craft gears are by Dutch Doobadoo and i thought on here they teamed in with the nautical look too, all links below,

Pretty in pink

Hi guys, I'm here today with our latest challenge over at We Do Doobadoo UK,
thanks for all your fab entries last time, we enjoyed looking at them and hope you will join in this time too,
the challenge is Lots of Layers with an optional -  stencil it,
this is my take on the challenge,
I made this for my mums Birthday as she loves pink, the stenciling is made by using the burlap stencil 470.715.006 and some home made 3D paste, I love using the stencils this way but they are also great when you emboss them with your die cutting/ embossing machines too, I love the added texture these stencils give so go check them out and see what way you could use them too,
For the corner detail I've used the fabby Dutch Doobadoo honeycomb soft board, 478.007.001 so love this stuff and could use it on everything lol,
closer view of burlap stenciling and honeycomb soft board, on the top I have added a few flowers from stash and some of the gorgeous DD laser art paper leaves, 472.948.002, these I find very useful and they come in a few sizes for what you need,
Tilda is from the latest animals collection and is called sneaky Tilda, I think she's too cute to be sneaky and is just holding a pressie behind her back lol, I have coloured her with my copics and added liquid pearl and stickles glue on her too,
the papers are by Maga Design and are from the Sofiero collection and vintage spring basics I think! the edges of the papers have been distressed and I have layered two sections together with a spellbinders die cut for added detail in the corners,
Butterflies are made with a Martha Stewart mould and Delight Air Dry clay from Crafts and Me,
