Celebrate in Style

Morning Crafters,

I can't believe we are at the start of another week, where do the weekend's go, although next weekend is a bank holiday weekend here in the UK, yippeeee.  As it's Monday, it's time for a new theme for the LLC Girls to follow and I'm (Tracy) kicking it off, and it is........ "April Showers brings May Flowers".  I'm sure your in for lots of different interpretations this week, but for me the showers have been and the flowers are out to bloom in abundance.

I coloured this cute LOTV image with copics, aren't they adorable.  The frantage has been out again around the image and on the 6mm pearls which had a coating of both the shabby green and the aged wine.  The gorgeous papers are from the MajaDesign Spring Basics collection, all links at the bottom of the post.  I have again chosen the 12x12 so that I can create my shaped card and although you can create a shaped card using the 6x6, it does turn out rather on the small side.

Here's a close up of the flowers I used, KortandGodt Rolled Roses and Hortensia's, Chrysanthemums, lilac poppies, spray flowers in lilac and white, and one of the new lacy chantelle prima flowers.  You will also notice the little berry pin and some feathers.  The leafs are cut with my new favourite die by Marianne Design swirl and leaf die.

 I have frantaged the wooden butterfly embellishment also, hehehe, this time using Aged Wine and Shabby White. I just can't stop myself and added one of the new prima typo bulbs  with the sentiment "US". Thought it suited this cute little couple.

 Here's a close up of the tag that pops out of the top right hand corner.  I have used vintage seam binding, lilac pastello lace, heart Amour lace, string pearls and added another prima Chantelle flower to the centre.  I have also added the rose heart charm, again the perfect accompaniment for this adorable couple card. Oh, I mustn't forget the little love hanger, which of course also had a coating of aged wine frantage.

As usual all links to all of the products used are below. Don't forget to pop back tomorrow for Tina's interpretation of the theme.

Hugs Tracy x
