Shabby Mannequin with some bling

Good Morning, 
it´s Karita calling for you today with a new card made with delicious products from the Live & Love Crafts' store.
Well this isn´t an ordinary card from me as you can see ;) No stamped image... no vintage image... I`ve totally surprised my self by making this card and you know what...?:) I love it!! :D

I think this card has almost everything that  I love in crafting - lots of beautiful embellishments and most of all, Pion Design papers :)
On this card I used Yellow Pansy 6"x6" paper from the "For Mother" collection. Inked all the paper edges with Distress Ink - Walnut Stain, used my sewing machine and added some Crackle Paint - Picket Fence from Rangers.
And now comes the best part of my card... Embellishments!!!
So what do you think?!?!? Aren´t they delicious!?!? :):)
When I first saw this gorgeous Crystal Cameo Broach from Melissa Frances, I totally fell in love with it!!
The Organza Primrose Flower under the broach is from Maya Road.
Few lovely pins on the card too. These pins are Vintage Trinket Crystal Pin and Vintage Pearl Pins.
Here you can see this beautiful Love Hanger from Maya Road. I have painted it a little bit to give some shabby effect :)

Have you already seen the magnificent collection of Live & Love Crafts' Hand - Dyed Seam Bindings? WOW!! I want them all! ;)
The beautiful lace is called Alencon and you can find the Pearl String at the LLC Store too :)

Okay, that´s all from me now.
Wishing you all a crafty weekend :)
Hugs, Karita
