Shabby baby carriage - Kianel

Hello my dear Cheery Lynn Designs lovers!
Today i am showing you the finished project i gave you a sneak peek of last week. So enough teasing now and as it is my first attempt to make such a project  i do ask forgiveness for the mistakes.
One thing is sure:  it's all made out of dies! 
Here comes the baby carriage, i really tried to get all possible details and you also have the baby sleeping inside (it's the cover of the mini album!). 
Here i used the XL scalloped circle stackers and comined it with large silver circle stackers. You can also see  the ribbon eyelet border with piercing and the Anastasia border which really looks like lace. A small exotic butterfly is decorating the top of the carriage.

 Detail of the wheel also all made of dies!
I used the scalloped circle window stackers, pieces of the Xtra large Heartland America and medium rose to make the wheels.

For the back of the carriage, i also worked with dies. I didn't want the carriage to keep a hole in the back so i went through my dies and there was the polynesian oval sails lying, perfect for what i wanted to do. The Anastasia border is here as a perfect lace border.
Here is a detail of the flower that covers the side of the carriage. It's all made out of dies! I used a combination of miniature rose, medium rose, large rose and cherry blossoms. I added a leaf from the small dimensional leaves set #2.
And here you can see the front of the carriage where i placed a banner. I made it using the pennant die  and the alphabet set "slightly script basic" 1/2".
And lying inside the carriage you have a mini album on the cover of which you have the baby boy sleeping. The base is made from little stackers coved rectangle. The layers are made with little stackers scalloped ovals and small silver stackers oval classic. To make the flower, i combined the miniature rose, the medium rose and the large rose. I also added pieces of the fanciful flourish die.

 And then 2 other pages with place for the pictures of the baby.  Same base is used but this time i chose to use the silver small stacker french flair classic, a piece of fanciful flourish and the lace light deco border. The other page is made using the olive branches and the heart piece of the large Heartland America.
The printed paper and baby boy stamps are from Magnolia. Almost all dies are covered with Creative Inspirations shimmery paints.

Okay, i hope you are still there and that you have enjoyed this project as much as i liked doing it. I will give more details and pictures on my blog tomorrow.
Just don't forget that we have our current challenge this week about making your own flowers and for that you can just grab your Cheery Lynn Designs dies and build the most amazing flowers like i did on this project.
Take care and see you next week, love from France, Kianel.
