Look! No papers!

 Oooooh! Scarey...! :-)
I haven't tried anything like this before so it was all a bit new and scarey :-) I've taken inspiration from a card on the fabulous Debby's blog which includes lots of white and embossing but no papers (absolutely beautiful - you must check it out!). I really wanted to give it a try - not as good as Debby's by a long stretch but I'm not too unhappy with the outcome!

I've coloured our lovely Tilda here with my promarkers and some glitter glue for sparkle. I cut her out using my nesties and used the (almost compulsory!) lacey leaf border punch from xcut the add a border.

The embossing for the background is victorian fleur from papermania and the smaller piece is mini polka dots from papermania. My lovely Mom bought me the pretty blue fluffy stuff that I've criss-crossed behind the image. The flowers are punched using a woodware plum flower punch and then layered up with some smaller flowers in the middle attached with brads. You can just about make out that I've added sparkle to the brads in this piccie:

Hope you like....

Going to go and put the heating on - I'm freeeeezing! Have a fab day!

Love 'n' hugs,
