The request was a late one (the I need it by tomorrow kind of late) and the remit was something BBQ-ish if possible ... so with the help of punches, embossing folders, fringe scissors, ink and bling, this was the end result.
Thanks for dropping by
Until next time, take care

The lace background is stamped using the I Love Lace background stamp from Stampin' UIp! and the flower is also a SU stamp called blended bloom.
The flower was coloured using blendabilities alcohol markers and I added perfect pearls liquid to the centre after I popped it up on dimensionals.
The picture doesn't really show the rather cute and snazzy bow I made although the pink brad gives you an idea of its location. I'm not sure where I got the ribbon but it is gorgeous embossed satin.
I popped up a punched sentiment panel and ink edged it in hot pink and blended it with smoky slate ink to match the card. I hope my niece will like it - I was pleased with how it turned out
Bye for now

The stamp is called Entangled and features a beautiful woman whose elaborate hair is made up of flowers and butterflies and beautiful greenery. I love it!
Taking inspiration form my chosen art collage backing, I coloured the image using promarkers, added layers of glitter for the dress and die cut a frame form blue glitter paper. I added a bow, lots of perfect pearls.
I was pleased with the way this came out and the customer was delighted. I hope that this card put a smile on the face of the beautiful birthday girl too.
until next time, take care
