I’ll get you my pretties….

Yep, I finally bought my very own Pretties kit!!! Yay! It is so lovely and has lots of pretty flowers, and beads, and pearls, and brads, and pins!!! Can you tell I like it?! LOL! Here is the first card I made with my new Kit……

I have used Pale Plum cardstock and some Le Jardin DSP along with a length of Chocolate Chip wide Grosgrain for the card. I have also stamped ‘thanks’ from the Much Appreciated stamp set in Versamark on the top right hand corner – I just wanted this to be subtle on there, not standing out which it would have if I’d used Perfect Plum or Choclate Chip ink which were my other two options. I have used my aquapainter and some Perfect Plum ink to colour my beautiful big flower fromt eh Pretties Kit lightly and once it was dry I threaded some of the gorgeous beads and pearls onto the hatpin, through the ribbon, then into the flower. To arrange the flower the way I have it, I actually have it folded into quarters and I pushed the pin into it so that the ‘cap’ of the pin is in the middle of the flower, kind of like a stamen.

Hope you like it and thanks for visiting! K 🙂
