Love Gives Us A Fairytale

Edit to add: This card is sold! Thank you so very much Christine

Happy Birthday Kelly!!! Have a wonderful day.

Usually i make my cards for the week on the weekend - but this time .. i do not know.. had not really any ideas. Getting kind of nerveous cause i dont even have a plan for CCT :-).

I made this card last week and played a little with my embossing powders. I used to use the powders a lot. All papers are Bazzill Bling papers (except the white) on top of the lilac paper i embossed the white swirls of Baroque Motifs and the Sentiment is embossed with Moon Glow Embossing powder. They are really pretty especially on very dark papers. The gorgeous flower was sent to me by my very talented friend Irina! She sent me so many different colors - they are all so pretty.


Stamps: Tilda (Summer Sea Collection 2008) .
Other: Baroque Motifs and Full of Life (love this set)
Embellishments: Swarovski Crystals, Stickles on Tildas wings

This is soooo pretty! I love how Tilda is sitting on and in the ribbon! The embossing is wonderful. I too use to do alot of that, funny how we forget some of our favorites then come back to them. Love all the purple too!
