Hello there,
Are you up for a picture heavy post today. I have a card ready that took a bit more effort to make, but I had a ball and good hardly stop. So for the minimalist card makers out there -I love that style too-, just have a little patience with this happy card maker. This card is going on the PDCC92: coral, petal pink and antique gold. I think I have nailed it : ) and what they have to win is really up my street; Glimmer Mist! Mama!
Here we go:
The card front: the stamps are from Wild Rose Studio Fairy Kira and Kaisercraft. Melissa Frances paper from the Vintage Attic Treasures pack. I cut the kraft card with my Gypsy using Wild Card to get the torn edge look and the Nestabilities were also put to good use for the frame.
Colouring with Distress Ink from Tim Holz and a little metallic white paint from Docrafts. EK Succes flowerpunch and Fiskars oval punch. Some old eyelets with charms and a bird charm from  my necklace.
I scrunched the flowers and gave them some though love. The swirl is from the Gypsy Wanderings cartridge.
The wings are sprinkled with glitter and just shine.
 Some twine instead of ribbon.
 Viva gold pearl pen for the flowers.
Another close up of Fairy Kira.
The inside of the card is also decorated using more designer paper and an EK Succes punch, flowers and more lace.
I also decorated the envelope with little flowers to make it all fit together.

Wow! This is such a beautiful card. Full of romantic style whimsy. So many wonderful textural elements like the lace and glossy tag. Crossing fingers for you to win the glimmer mists :) Pxx
