Spring Pastels Take #2 for Megs Garden

Hello sweet visitors and welcome to my blog.  So pleased you dropped by for a visit.

Sharing another card today made with some lovely goodies from Megs Garden.

The papers are from the Spring Pastels Collection.  You can buy them already printed but  the ones I've used here I printed out myself from the digital version.  These came out fairly pale (which is what I wanted) but, when you are printing them out yourself, you have the option of printing them any way you like.

Edged the top layer of paper with Martha Stewart's Floral Vine Deep Edge Punch and added the chippie pieces for extra interest.

The yellow bloom below is the Puffy Paper Flower which is available from the Garden (I will list all of Megs products at the end of this post).   It was white originally and I simply sprayed it with some Liquitex ink.

The large white bloom is the Azalea .. available from Megs Garden of course .. and so is the large Mini Rose Bud.  The Azalea was left as is but I did re-colour the rosebud.

The other flowers in this cluster are from my stash.

Sprinkled the flowers and card with a mix of clear and pale pink micro beads and added some glitter to the chipboard pieces.

The papers used on the inside were also edged with the same punch as before.  Aren't those papers pretty???   I love the subtle pattern.

A little gauze under the cluster just to soften the look and my card was done!!

  7. Soooo beautiful! That paper is GORG & I really like the idea of glittering up the chippy! It's just the prettiest card:) Thanks for the thoughts & prayers--- we've certainly had a doozy month or so! Anyways... up & up as they say....:):)!!!!

  8. Deliciously soft and elegant work. The floral border and delicate papers work superbly together and I love the gently treated chippies, so that they just glimmer and glow. The subtly coloured blooms cluster in harmony, centre stage and the whole thing is a work of Art. Always a joy to see what you've been creating. Keep cool on this nasty hot day. Roll on Autumn. xo

  9. So delicate and pretty, - you always create magic with these papers!! That cluster looks incredible!!
