Girly birthday card - Kianel

Hello dear Cheery lynn designs lovers!
Kianel here with you today to show you a girly birthday card i have made for the last TOMIC challenge and the actual challenge here at Cheery Lynn Designs which is layers and using the fantastic reflections dies. Have i told you that those dies are amazing? The possibilities are just endless and next week i will share a tutorial with you on how to extend the possibilities of your reflection dies so stay tuned!
So here is the card i made:
 Many different layers on this card. The base of the card is made using the XL square stacker combined with the Large silver square stacker. On the right side, you can see an exotic butterfly small decorated with pearls.
For the clustering i used the large rose die, the leaves from the Judy's blooms die. The pink tulle is a stacker flower #6 die that i flipped in 2 and placed under the rose.
 One of the layers is made using the horizon coved rectangle mega doily (size 1).
A second layer is made using the beautiful Lace square heart mega doily (size 4). You can also see that i used the mini pearl circle mega doily (size 3) under my stamped image and the base of the stamped image is made using the Large silver classic circle stackers as a template. The patterned paper is cut using the cardmaker's rectangle stacker.
To build the band on the left side, i used the Mini pearl rectangle mega doily (size 3).
And you know how much i like to use the leftovers from my cutting so here i used the leftovers from the lace square heart mega doily and made a kind of banner around my image with them. I just added some pearls in the center of each little heart (those hearts measure approximately 6x5mm, super tiny but super cute!).

The cardstock is from Bazzill, the stamps from the brand new collection by Magnolia, the patterned papers are also from Magnolia, the colouring is made with versafine + distress + creative inspirations shimmer paints, all the embellishments are coming from a french online store.

I also wanted to show you a card i made for a monthly kit i am DTing for here in France in a vintage style and where i could use some Cheery Lynn designs dies:
On this card i used the following dies from Cheery Lynn Designs: Cardmaker's rectangle stackers, dimensional butterflies, olive branch and the mini pearl circle mega die around the vintage picture.
