Craft for the Craic DT Project
May, Theme this month is Wings


I matted and layered blue and pink card
Then added a cross over Ribbon detail in pink and blue
Added a lovely rose trellis background to a plain blue card layer, and stuck this toward the top left.
I Decoupaged a lovely blue bird image, with I layered onto pink then blue card allowing a 1/2 cm boarder each layer.
The main image over lays the ribbon detail.
I haven't added any bows this time as the image was so pretty, it would of taken from it.
so added some tiny pearls for detail.




I used a verse from the beautiful poem
God's Garden
By Dorothy Frances Gurney 
and put the full poem inside the card

Dragons Lair DT Project
May; Theme is Bouquet of Flowers
I was a florist for over 25 years,
so love adding little floral touches to my cards.
I have a tutorial for the little bouquet HERE
and a classic four loop bow HERE


 The beautiful back ground papers are from the 
Simply Soft Collection HERE


And the Fan is from the 
Southern Comfort Elements HERE

I decorated the fan with some pretty pink guipure lace
and added some beaded pins
I made a selection of bows  and threaded some pearls and crystals on to fine ribbon,

I cut the insert wrong
so added the pink ribbon to off set the image.
