This card has the addition of some beautiful flowers. They are by SWEET LILAC http://www.sweetlilac.co.uk/ which I have recently discovered. I saw them used on another blog JR CRAFTS http://jr-crafts.blogspot.co.uk/ and could not resist buying some. I have made the card to enter into the challenge on the Sweet Lilac blog.
The paper used for the background is from some of my stash which I have had for quite a while. I do love the vintage look which is strange as I really did not like it at all at one time. On one square I stamped the lovebirds and a lovely swirl in the corner. Then I cut another rectangle and stamped the swirl again and also a birdcage. Brown Archival ink was used for all images as I thought it went well with the paper. The rectangle was matted onto a contrast card then added to the left of the lovebirds. The whole image was matted and layered onto another two pieces of contrasting card.
Time for the fun bit, adding some of the beautiful flowers. At the moment I have not got too many to choose from but I chose ones that went with the colour scheme. I think the small roses are cute and reckon I will be using them quite a lot in the future. A couple of swirls of quilling paper and a bow completed this project.
I am entering this card into the Sweet Lilac July/August challenge which is Birds of a Feather.
