Lil' Alva and her forest friends


Hello happy Wednesday. I really love to work with my new papers. Oh my gosh.. how cute is this new line from Imaginice???? I knew right away when i saw it on the rack, that i wanted to use it with my Alf and Alva Magnolia stamps! All my cards before with this line used kind of "serious" papers, but aren't those images so versatile and look just adorable with any style????

The card created using this weeks fabulous ISMAKI sketch! The sketch required two embellishments on the top right corner but i could not bare to cover up my little deer and that bird :-) so Heidi Swapp's ghost daisy flowers were just perfect. They fill in the empty spot but do not overpower the card layout. I added Paper Glaze to the flower Alva is holding and the top of her hat (heart). Stickles is used on petals of ghost shape and the pink mat. The ribbons can be found in next months Raspberry Ribbon Kit! I used on this card the yellow and green organdy ribbon strings.
Here are a couple of pictures to show the envelo box i made for this card. The tutorial for this envelope can be found here.
Thanks a bunch for stopping by today :-)
i have also altered something to match the card :-) spent some time this weekend with my stuff :-)
