Frilly and fun

This week Mother Marks Famous Tea Pot Tuesday challenge is to make a card for this gal that needs some uplifting spirit energy work... She also loves The Unsinkable Molly Brown... as her grandmother works at the Museum of the Unsinkable Molly Brown.. So we are suppose to do a card with a lot of GREENS... ooopps... mine is a lot of PINKS... but it is suppose to frilly.. and lovely, and feminine and mine is all of those so I guess it will pass..
Above is the front of the card... I used Cuttlebug Embossing Plus folder called Brocade Door
as I love the effect of that rich embossing... and the opening.. .
I put some flowers by Pretties by Bonnie around the bottom of the card..
Of course I painted the digital flowers with my twinkling H20's.. and because they are digital, I was able to use the same pattern and make two different size flowers...
Now one thing I have found to be really nice with flowers... is that if you make the top flower a little bit smaller, you can really give dimension to the flower in so many additional ways... so actually there are 4 different size flowers...
I used Liquid pearl by Ranger around the centers of the flower... and then put a pearl in the center to make a statement...
The leaves are from the Dogwood Digital set... You can so mix and match all the flowers, leaves, branches etc... really a lot of fun to play with and use..
As you can see I have a nice big pink bow on the side to close the card... more frills.. that is all.

When you open the card, you will see this.. .
The background is a lime sheet of cardstock punched with Martha's flower punches...
Then a pretty pink floral paper... a little old fashioned, yet really new...
Then I used a spellbinder oval scalloped to frame the white oval..
On the pink I added a pearl for each scallop... more frills.
and then on the white oval, I used a cute border from Just Rite Stamps.. Love them
The woman??? I don't know where I got her from... but isn't she wonderful...
In all her regal-ness... large brim hat, flowers all over her... and a lovely rose at her neck...
So prim and proper she is sitting there...
Reminds me of the Unsinkable Molly Brown..
So that's the card for Tea Pot Tuesday...
Thanks for taking a look.. more cards will follow soon...
In fact tomorrow there is a fun Under the Sea card... check it out...
Thanks for stopping by... and love to have you visit..
Love, Light and Peace...Bonnie
