I've used the beautiful Lily (from Michelle Perkett's Etsy store here) to make this card for the challenge this week at Michelle Perkett Studio where the challenge is to use circles and ribbon, Lily was the perfect image to start with as she has that lovely circle background but I also used lots of circles of scrap paper to make the flowers and added a little ribbon and some spirals of memory thread between them
I made an 8x8 base card and distressed the edges with copper brilliance ink. The layout of the card is courtesy of the gorgeous sketch from Truly Scrumptious where the challenge this week has the optional extra of embossing. I've used a K&co bp and then embossed some peach card and some green whitewash coredinations card through my cuttlebug. I sanded the whitewash card to let the green show through and highlighted the embossing on the peach card with copper brilliance ink.
Lily is coloured with promarkers and has highlights of chantilly lace glitter on her wings and flowers. I made some more scrunched paper flowers but instead of fastening them with a brad in the centre, i added a good dollop of glue and some irridescent lime seed beads. To finish off, I used some little pastic circles (from our local scrap store) and glued more beads to them. I've had a job getting a photo as its so dull and dismal today, the colours are really bright and zingy in the flesh.
I'm also entering Lily into the following challenges:
