Dandelion Girl Card

Hi all

I finally finished the card I started making on Tuesday night, had a block as to what to do on the inside!!!  The front is based on a card by the talented Bev Rochester.

The cute image is Dandelion Girl Digi Image from Whimsey Stamps by Sylvia Zet, she does very cute images.  The paper is from my Scrap Cake pad The Bright Side of Life, is gorgeous paper but actually quite expensive, I did a break down of how much it cost to make this card and got a bit of a shock!!! The paper being the most expensive!! Don't think it pays to go into that much detail of cost.

Some close ups.......

The fence is a Doo-hickey die, the flowers & ribbon are all Wild Orchid Crafts (although the white Cherry Blossom's I pinched out of Rachel's stash but is still WOC), thanks for that Rach!!!  I put a little Star Dust Stickles on the pink flowers and the dandelion flowers in the picture.

The insides which took forever.......

and close ups.......

The butterfly is from Dusty Attic, which I have painted with perfect pearls and added some Kaiser Craft bling, the swirl is another Doo-hickey die painted with perfect pearls and then lots of Star Dust Stickles.

Now looking at the insides I don't know why it took sooooo long!!! But I am pleased just to get it finished :) .

The back very simple.......

Well the weekend is drawing to a close and I didn't get as much done as I had hoped for, never mind tomorrow is another day.

Hope you enjoyed my card. 

Take care
