Faery Dreams


 
Good Morning - Alison here today :)  I hope everyone is having a really good week so far.
 
Our challenge this week is the ever popular 'Anything Goes' and you still have lots of time to enter.  As always the winner will receive a fab $20 voucher to spend online in the Cheery Lynn Store.
 
My card today is an 8 x 8 inch gatefold card, so it opens in the middle and this makes a really nice change as a canvas.  I used First Edition 12 x 12 Spring papers and 12 x 12 Coordinations textured card which I sanded to give a shabby look.
 
I bordered each panel with the gorgeous Celtic Chain border, this is 8 inches long and is perfect for these larger projects, and added a couple of Fanciful Flourishes to the base. 
 
 
I then matted my image onto Coved and Scalloped Coved Rectangles, and I hooked 10 Lace Corner deco dies behind the image to create an ornate frame. The flowers are made using the Daisy Strip die - this is such a classic flower, and I offset the petals a little to give it a bit of fantasy look. The sentiment is backed onto the Sophie's Heart Mini Doily, and I added a couple of butterflies to finish.
 
All dies used on this card are:
 
 
Thats all from me today, but dont forget there is always fresh inspiration from the rest of the talented DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog.
 
Thanks so much for visiting our blog and have a smashing day!
