When Meg's Garden becomes Versaille's Garden

Hello Bloggers

This is what Sylvie calls this small shabby chic card and its matching box envelope & she explains this beautiful project: 
I cut in differents papers: Birds in Forget me Nots P6303A, Old Writing from the Element Collection, Old World Time 1037; Summer Beauty from the Ode to a Summer's Day Collection, Antoinette 3373A.

This is what I like about Meg's Garden papers; there are so many small patterns that can be kept & all the paper falls to create  an entire  project... I love above all flowers and foliage..Just take a look at the card frame or the Eiffel Tower embellishment at the  back of the card to see how these small patterns work together to adorn themselves as a part of the project.
 I used  paper lace doily square to create an envelope. I just  folded the doily paper and I stiffened it with cardboard. I then cut another lace doily paper and this time I kept the pattern inside the square. I colorized it with pastel Brown chalk. To finish I used gesso on the flowers, round silver diamante trim and  iridescent gold paint on the frames to remind me of the gilding of the castle of Versailles and its gardens...

What a beautiful card & box envelope - well done Sylvie.  The way you have put so many different papers together is fabulous & each of the embellishments & elements is terrific.
