Using Meg's Garden latest collection, A Lady's Diary, I have created another two cards in one of my favourite colours - Pink!
The Lady in her pink evening dress is the centre piece of this card.
Starting with a delicate square doily, the stunning image is framed by a detailed die cut. Both die cut and doily are inked in rose pink.
The card is finished with ribbon bows, toning paper flowers and a 'Happy Birthday' sentiment.
For something different, I created a folding card to feature the beautiful papers within this collection.
Using the intricate lace images on the paper as inspiration, I superimposed lace edging over the designs, topped with narrow cream ribbon.
One half of the card is folded, giving the stand up effect.
A cut and create image from a previous of Meg's collections formed the background for the floral mount on the front of the stand up.
Holding the folded piece in place, an exquisite filigree metal embellishment.
Additional elements of design include a beautiful hat pin, shreds of muslin and pink and cream paper flowers with matching narrow ribbon bow.
