Faerie Poppet

A very good morning to you all, I hope you've had a good weekend. After several days of not making any cards I finally made it into the craft room over the weekend and did some creating. I posted a Christmas card yesterday and have two DT cards to show later this week. Today's share is the card I've made  for the little girl next door who's one today.


I've used a gorgeous Faerie Poppets decoupage from Crafter's Companion simply mounted onto a white pearlised card mat which I've punched with a Martha Stewart PATP and added lace and ribbon to the bottom. The bow was made on my bowdabra and is finished with a button from Crafty Ribbons. Base card is an 8 x 8 lilac pearlised card. The sentiments are computer generated and pearl hearts are from my stash. I've deliberately left the card quite plain to let the image take centre stage.
And some side views to show the dimension on the decoupage.
