Feminine card!

Hello Crafters...
Yes, I am here with a feminine card today with looooooooots of layers and loads of embellies! Love challenges which gives you the freedom to load the card, especially if it layered, there is so much scope to insert so many things!

The inspiration comes from the Recollections paper pack "pretty as a peacock" and have stuck to a mono choromatic theme with just peacock feathers distress inks.

There are in all 8 layers in this card starting from the base white CC ( the edges have been heat embossed in silver),the PP from Recollections, Corrugated cardboard(gessoed),silver net,CLD Doilie, haberdashery dry embossed top panel, a gross grain ribbon on the base and then the sentiment label! LOOOOve it!

The haberdashery embossing folder has all the required feminine elements and I only had to add the dimensional embellies to enhance it! The flowers are all handmade using CLD Shasta daisy die and hope you can see the pompom flowers which I have made using an old, discarded measuring tape! There is an old bobbin which has been gessoed too and has a lovely lace on it and it just sits perfectly complimenting the theme!

The wooden buttons are from My Minds Eye and the stick pins in the same color theme is hand made and the bakers twine bow completes the left corner.
The top right corner has the ornate silver corner from Joy crafts and the CLD doilie.
I love the sentiment from Stampendous and its just so perfect for that special person you want to give!

I am really happy with the way this feminine, layered, shabby chic monochromatic card has come out. The extra ingredient here is loots of love from me! I think its a perfect mothers day card!
Please let me know what you think????
Thank you soooo much for stopping by.

Happy Crafting and Re cycling.
