Fashionista Birthday card

A birthday card to share today and I do love the vibrancy of this card kit along with its beautiful toppers.

I used a white 7 x 7 inch card blank and part of the Bright Lights Fabulous Fashionista Mini Cardmaking Kit by Opulence by Design Crafts.  The PDF - 5 page digital download includes 2 beautiful toppers, 6 sentiments and 4 fabulous designer backing papers that could also be printed onto cardstock and used as card blanks. 

I printed my topper onto glossy photo paper (170gsm, Wilko brand) and I added some pale blue mirror board between the layers.

Of course, I had to add flowers and I used a mix of purple & lemon Pansies with the pink & lilac Violas by Opulence by Design Crafts. Not forgetting the Pansy Leaf which I think is a great foliage to pop in with any flower arrangement that you are using.

I've added glossy accents to the centre of the flowers and a little diamond Stickles glitter glue to embellish.

This card does actually fit into its envelope. Normally when I add flowers to my cards, I need to make an envelope, especially if it has to be posted and that's where I find the 12 x 12 plain cardstock pads from The Range come in really handy.

I have only used part of this brilliant kit to make my card but will be sharing another card next month that I have made using the rest of the kit, as I have made it for a special birthday, I need to hold onto it until then.

My flower box is getting a little full now, I think I need another one! I must admit, it is one of my favourite crafty things to do.

Have a great week,  whatever you have planned for yourself.

Happy crafting
