Undeniably 'girly' to the point of perhaps being uber-feminine, this card sees me using my Promarkers & Cameo again. The image, 'Hepburn Dress', is from A Day for Daisies and in this soft pink colour scheme (chosen from the Live & Love challenge), reminds me of a chic ballerina - but this is probably more to do with one of the layers being the colour of satin ballet shoes than the shape of her dress alone. The image's mat peeks through the layer immediately above it - this text-printed layer having an oval cut-out and the edges of it inked before being set on the card using foam pads.
The fortnightly challenge at a Day for Daisies suggests use of a doily (&/or twine too) and for my interpretation I have gone for a whole doily-based card shape and the lace work is echoed in the central white border running just above the floral bouquet. Two of the flowers used for embellishment were cut from single-sided card so that the white core peeking out would hopefully give a softer and more delicate feel - in keeping with those of the photo inspirational picture I thought.
On the inside there are just a couple of layers. This time 2 ovals were cut from pink- text paper before being given inked edges and a sentiment from Bird's Cards added beneath one of them. As you can see, I just couldn't resist adding a couple of pink pearls to the flourishes - the same ones giving the butterfly it's 'body' on the card's front. I will write in the other oval cut out at a later date.
As ever, thanks for coming by my blog today.
