Make it feminine

Over at the Outlawz Twisted Thursday this week's optional twist is FEMININE. I've used an image from My Besties who's our sponsor for June together with Paper Temptress. To be in the chance of winning one of these prizes all you need to do is enter in one or more of our challenges in June.*ikFbs7RvkTAltEtRdMWwndU*0*roWxdep7CM6pk0jyLzt7*qDg/papertemptress.gifI've used parts of the image, which you can find here, as I wanted it to fit inside of this die cut silver mirri card frame. The die is from Marianne. I've used blue and brown colored papers from Prima. There are lots of pearls on this card, half pearls, a pearl brad and liquid pearls on the image. I've used a gorgeous flower lace that I bought when visiting Riga in Latvia earlier this year. I also added a little piece of lace to make the ribbon that holds together her braided hair. I used a MB die and vellum to make the swirl and a gorgeous metal bird cage charm. The inner panel is machine stitched with white thread and I've also added some cheesecloth.
I normally don't add this many items to a card, I often feel that I end up making the card look messy, but I'm quite happy with how this one turned out. The photo below shows how I decorated the inside.

This card is also for these challenges:
1) My Besties Norge - #19 Pearls / Beads
2) Try It On Tuesday - Feminine & Fancy
3) Crafty Bloggers Network - BINGO (die cuts+image+patterned paper)
4) The Squirrel & The Fox - #70 Girls
5) That Craft Place - Ribbon / Lace

Super card, love the image, frame is stunning in that colour and your gorgeous bird cage. Your lace is beautiful.
The leaves you asked about are a die, but honestly I don't know the brand as I never keep the packet as a reference...think it is a spellbinders, will check for you tomorrow.xx

Beautiful inside and out!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Just incredible, Pia! If I only added three of those items, a card of mine would look messy, so I am impressed at how this turned out looking so planned and perfectly embellished! Even the inside is fantastic! That's like giving the recipient two additional cards!! Have a great weekend!! Hugs, Darnell

scrappymo! said...

Me again...popped back to say the the inside of your card is wonderful!!!

Thanks for the kind comments about the snippets cards.

I scrapbook too...I just rarely show the layouts on my blog. My family are very private and do not want their photos shared.
But scrapbooking creates a lot of snippets so between the two hobbies, I have a filing cabinet full of snippets!

Faye Wynn-Jones said...

What a great card Pia. I like the embellies you've added, they work really well with your image choice x

Amanda said...

Wow, how different to your CAS nautical scene, you are so talented to be able to jump from one style to another. I love the way her hair hangs over the edge, a cute little idea that caught my eye immediately x

Asha said...

This is so different from the CAS but equally spectacular! LOVE how you use the cheese cloth to add some shabbiness to an otherwise elegant card.
hugs, Asha
