Bunches of Love

Good Evening Everyone, 

How are we all today? I can't believe it is Saturday night already were has the time gone. 

 Today's card is a card I made for my father in law to give to my mother in law for her birthday on Wednesday. 

I made an 8x8 card with different mats and layers with mint and purple, the purple is a pearlised card stock I believe from Crafters Companion - think I got it with a kit when I purchased a CD and stamp combination from them. 

The image is from Lili of the Valley and I think this is just so cute, love the little bear and his mouse friend with their matching watering cans.

I made the roses myself using a 5 petal flower cut from my cricut machine at 2 inches I used the flower on the cartridge All Mixed Up and used the "shadow" flower. You need three flowers all cut at the same size, one flower you put a hole in the center. The second on you cut two petals of and the third you cut one petal of. You fold, and shape to how you want it and then I use a hot glue gun to fix together and finish with a stamen. 

The butterflies and swirls are also from the Cricut machine in various sizes - the swirl is from Wild Card and the butterflies from Martha Stewart Elegant Cake Art. 

The sentiment "Bunches of love" has been stamped using a black ink pad and is from a popcorn bear stamp range. also called "Bunches of love"

To finish the card I added some embossing detail to the bottom half of the top layer  I used a Sue Wilson A4 folder, Added a piece of white ribbon that I coloured in using my Mint Promarker to make it match. Added Opal liquid pearls to the center of the embossing sections, and to the center of the butterflie.

Here is the card.
