Make it Charming - Charisma Cardz

2nd Post of the Day



Whew...... 2 posts in one day!! :D lol.

Our new challenge over at Charisma Cardz this week was chosen by me, and I picked one of my favourites embellishments to add to a card - 'Charms'.  I love to see dangling charms, they really add movement to a card and always make it look so special.  We are sponsored this week by the brilliant Joanna Sheen, Meljens Designs and Crafty Ribbons.

I hand-stitched some uber-gorgeous papers on this card from Bearly Mine Designs, using sheets from the Mini Dots, Paper Lace and Floral Fantasy collections.  I loved being able to size them to fit and and pick my own shades :).  I coloured my Tilda with PM's, used MS punches for the doily background, border and butterflies, and the flowers are WOC. 

The pink dotty satin ribbon is Joanna Sheen, the gorgeous heart pin is from my blogging buddy Karen (thank you!) and the dragonfly charm is from my stash.  The mini doily is a Spellbinders Persian accent blinged up a bit, and I have no idea where I got the silver beaded loops from lol!

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Sandra Mathis said...

Hi Alison,
I should follow your example; have trillions of charms, but for some reason I don't use them very often. :-) Lovely card - thanks for joining the Sketchy Girls.

Hugz,
Sandy

Paula (PEP) said...

Well 'blinged up a bit' is an understatement if ever I saw one. Those sparkly bobbly bits have the eye going all over the place (perhaps I'm getting old?) & I love how they pick out not only the polka dots of the paper but the diamond dotty pattern of the far left panel. WE've got lots of those white fluffy bits flying about in the air this morning too - suspect they're bits of dandelion but they might be bits of sheep wook.
Have a good weekend.
