Belle and Boo Birthday Card

First of all I have some very exciting news- my Pirate Shutter Card was named as project of the month on the Trimcraft website. You can read about it hereTrimcraft project of the month for April. This is especially exciting as I love Trimcraft products, particularly  Belle and Boo, and have already received a fantastic prize to make more lovely projects with.

Today's card is more Belle and Boo but this time it's a little girl's birthday card. I wanted the focus of the card to be the image and the fab papers but also wanted to add some pretty embellishments. I did this by die cutting and layering some flowers and adding lace and ribbon. I have also used a distress ink pad to add a slightly shabby chic look, which is a departure from my usual clean lines.

Products used: 
Trimcraft Belle and Boo 6x6 paper pad, Decoupage pad, Ribbon
Trimcraft Sweet Paris Pearls
Docrafts Lace Trim
Trimcraft First Edition Flower Dies
Craft UK card blank
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad Victorian Velvet
