Shimmering chandelier

I 've tried to make something unusual. Not so long ago I bought the Cricut Home Decor cartridge. It has some lovely images, like this chandelier. It may be intended to decorate walls, but I liked it for a card and I wanted it in lilac. These chandelier images seem to be in fashion, together with damask and velvet or flock. I 've seen a bit of it since last Christmas and Marks & Sparks follows the trend, although they do pink and black.The chandelier crystals are decorated with Stickles Gold an Silver Ice. I 've used Basic Grey Euphoria paper and stitched to a white card. I then stitched a piece of lace from John Lewis to the card. I embossed a piece of acetate with the Swiss dot folder in the Cuttlebug and also stitched it to the card. I used acetate to give more shine to the chandelier. The 'Greetings from' scrap is from Mamelok Press and layered on the same lilac paper from Basic Grey as I used to cut the chandelier. The little angel scrap is from Crafty Secrets Valentine scraps. I just added some Papermania cream pearls ans some Hortensia flowers from Prima and voila....ready.
I just want to share to more pics from my garden. Look who was playing hide and seek!
Though they didn't hide much. This year we 've got a lot of babies from all different species. These are Goldfinches and haven't got their red head yet. But aren't they cute! This one is the smallest and just kept falling asleep. They don't even fly away when I hang out the wash, they just sit there bobbing their little heads. Hope they're all safe in their nest tonight.
Have a good evening and thanks for looking.
