Lots of Layers...

I made this birthday card for my Aunt Pat. Her birthday falls on Thanksgiving this year. The card has three different layers of patterned papers, all distressed around the edges. I added a paper doily that I sprayed with tattered angels mist to look yellowish. I topped that with a strip of patterned paper down the center which I embellished with a stamped, chalked cupcake that is edged with german glass glitter, a hand dyed tiny square button tied with natural string, tiny pink gem strips and a stamped and cut out banner. I then attached a large piece of white eyelet lace and some pink seam binding ribbon roses I made.

Christmas Gift Bags...

I made these using small craft bags. I printed my vintage images from Magic Moonlight's blog site.
I already had this one packaged up to take to Vintage Crush. Its
really a beautiful color. Love it!

Snowflake Card...

I made this card to resemble a banner shape. I embellished it with a felt snowflake, gem brad, a punched doily, seam binding ribbon, a strip of  lace, pom pom fringe and ribbon flowers. I sewed and inked around the edges.

Polka Dot Birdie...

Another little birdie. This one I made for my husband for our wedding anniversary. It now hangs on our portrait beside our bed.

Little Birdie...

The bird pattern is hand drawn and cut from chipboard then covered with miscellaneous patterned papers. I stamped the word "nest" and cut the letters out seperately and attached. The edges are trimmed with german glass glitter, so pretty! I have attached a seam binding bow topped with a hand dyed button and floral stem. The eye is a half pearl and I have attached a twine hanger to the top.
