GUEST DESIGNER FOR CRAFTING BY DESIGNS MARCH MONTH-LONG CHALLENGE

Hiya!!!!

Today I'm bringing you a card I've made as Guest Designer for the March challenge at Crafting by Designs Monthly challenge!!!! I was thrilled when I was asked to Guest Design, as I love their challenge so much!
Thank you so much for having me!
Today another almost month-long challenge starts. It is Anything goes, so hop over and join  in the fun!!!

For my card, I used an image by one of the sponsors, A Day for Daisies. This one is called "Vintage Slip" and it's one of lots of freebies that you can find in their store.





I thought that the image had a Romantic kind of feeling, so I decided to make a romantic girlie card.

The papers I've used are from K&Company, First Edition Love Letters and from a magazine freebie. 
I distressed all the card stock and paper edges with the Tim Holtz Distress Tool and ink them with blue ink.

As an extra layer I've used a big piece of lace mesh.


I coloured the image with my Promarkers.

Cocoa, Burnt Sienna, Raw Sienna, Sandstone and Buttercup for the hair.

Vanilla and almond for the skin.

Blossom, Pink Carnation, Lavender and Blender pen for the dress.

Cornflower and Powder blue to the birds.

Blossom, Antique pink, powder blue, cornflower, lavender and leaf green for the flowers on the hair.








I used a floral stamp (freebie from a magazine) with brown ink to decorate the edges of the image. 
The "ENCHANTING" sentiment is also a freebie from the magazine.

I handmade the big white flower. If you want to know how I made it, I put up a tutorial a few weeks ago HERE.

The rest of the flowers and the pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The big rhinestone, heart pins, lace and washi tape are from local shops.

I also used some die cuts as embellishments:

Sizzix Doily die cut behind the image
Marianne Creatables bird and bird house die cut
Marianne Creatables corner die.







I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in alphabetical order)


Artistic Inspirations #81 - Sparkles / Anything goes (big rhinestone in flower as sparkle)
Oldie but a goodie - Spring has sprung (lace, pins, papers are more than 6 month old)
Quirky Cards #5 - The Secret Garden (inspired by the birds, flowers, romanticism in the video)
Whoopsi Daisy - Lots of flowers


I really hope my GDT project for March Crafting by Designs Monthly challenge!!!
If you do, I would love it you leave a comment.. and don't forget to follow me! :)

Until next time!
