Girly Cards at Crafting with Dragonflies

This fortnight at Crafting with Dragonflies our theme is Girly Cards. I made a card for two of my favorite girls in the world...my nieces.


The image is a pre-colored & fussy-cut topper from LOTV, although I did add a bit more color with Copic markers. The purple patterned papers are from Graphic45's Secret Garden collection (somehow appropriate!) and the card base is a plain purple paper. I cut the frame with 2 scalloped, sqaure dies, and decorated it with adhesive half-pearls. The top portion is a pearly paper that I punched with an MS punch & wrapped with an ombre ribbon. The sentiment piece is the same pearly paper, cut with a YNS die & stamped with a Clear Art Stamps sentiment. I added two heart-shaped brads & inset them with more half-pearls.
