A Fairy Bee Card

Hey everyone!

So how was that post last Sunday? Everyone enjoy it? Ok, yes... that's a joke. I'm really sorry about that, I woke up sick again on Sunday and couldn't breath much less think, turns out that I developed a sinus inffection. Got some med's on Monday and spent the next few day just feeling bleh. But, were over that now... kinda. This card that I'm sharing is one that I made up last night for a friends sister. For some reason I just always see black and yellow as her colors, so we have a black, white and yellow card today.


So I used a white on white resistance circle pattern paper for the background circle and distressed it with black ink. Two doily's were used too make a nice ruffle frame that was glued it behind a Lacey Circle Spellbinders. Spellbinders in the corners are from the 'Fleur De Lis Accents', and in the top left is a Memory Box die cut 'Elegant Scrollwork'. Pearls are used in the background as well as pearl head pins sticking out of the flowers. The flowers are from wild orchid crafts and were all yellow to start with but I used my yellow copic's to add some extra color to the tips of the petals. Also used a cute black and white check ribbon to make a bow for the corner.


Close up! I just love all of these yellows, they make the whole card look so happy. Some glitter was used in her hair as well as on her wings and shirt, she is a fairy after all. As for the 'Bliss', I thought that it fit with the card but it also happens to be the name of the girl I made this card for.


A little play on words, more die cuts as well as some washii tape for the inside of the card.

Well thats all for now, I will be making another post today with all that i promised last week with the art walk and all. Cant wait to show the painting that I bought, so pretty! I hope that all of you had a great week and awesome weekend!
