Summer with best friend !!

Hi Bloggers

Had three days off in a row one from last week and two for this week ! It's been lovely . I  have crafted loads and finally got the cricut craft room to work !! It's been a bit of a saga let me tell you lol! but so cool to play with ;0). I have made a pretty girlie card . I chose to colour LOTV "Summer with best friend".  her best friend is a wee kitty ;0) 

.My inspiration came fro Lil's little fairies challenge 3 which this week is lavender and lace (which I love) and from WOC challenge 41 - which is creature comforts - Have a kitten in stamp and insects - dragonflies .

Lastly I bought this gorgeous 12 x 12 paper at my local art shop from Basic Grey it's from the Oh 'Baby Girl Collection.. I would like to enter this into the Basic Grey Challenge Blog - which is favourite things . My favourite things are using lace  & flowers.

Here she is ... I used my prismacolor pencils in lavender shades to colour her dress ! I have made the card into a huge shaker card so it's purple micro beads in the picture lol .

I used the cricut to make the shape fir the card in which I intertwined seam binding which I misted with cosmic plum . I added this beautiful lace and made a bow with a moonstone brad to secure. I put in this gorgeous pin I bought from a superd  crafter and a bunch of tiny roses which were misted too !

I used some beautiful blossoms around the frame and Magnolia Doohickey Dragonfly die cuts !

I also decorated the inside with a place for the sentiment and added these gorgeous gypshophilias , a magnolia satin ribbon bow with gem brad and mini pearls !!

I really enjoyed making something pretty as the last two creations were a bit out my comfort zone lol !! I shall leave the recipe underneath ! Hope you are all having a great week !!
