Good evening everyone.
I would like to enter this card into
This months theme is Name That Tune.
My card is based on the song 'I Feel Pretty Oh So Pretty' from
West Side Story.
 I thought I would do a tutorial on the card
I have made. I hope it gives you some inspiration.
I used
Just For Girls Art Pad from Lili of The Valley
7 x 7 card base from Anna Marie Designs.
Country Lady Paper Pad from Lili of The Valley.
Kraft Card.
Old Paper Distress Ink.
Lace, flowers, die cuts and sentiment.
I used a 7 x 7 white card base
Next I matted some papers from the paper pad
onto craft card
On one of the layers I stuck lace onto the sides
I then layed the mats onto the base card
I used one of the toppers from the art pad and die-cut it into a circle.
Using Old Paper distress ink I distressed the topper to give it
an aged look to keep in with the theme of the papers and layed it onto
a pre-cut doiley.

I then layed the topper centrally onto the card
Then I cut out bunting using a La La Land Die and
leaves from a Joanna Sheen Signature Die.

Next I positioned the embellishments and added some flowers
 and made a sentiment using word.
Here is the finished card
I hope you like it and will be back soon with
more inspiration for you.
Thank you for popping by.
